Where to Fossick
in these areas can be done by digging in the recommended localities, easily identified by old workings and dry sieving
the decomposed sedimentary gravels. Good observations skills are required to identify the gemstones as experience is gained this task becomes easier.
While most of the access roads are gravel, most are fairly rough due to corrugations. The construction of a 4WD is more able to absorb the road shocks and is the recommended vehicle to use in this area. Bush tracks leading to gemstone sites are typical of those found on designated fossicking areas depending upon the time of year-usually it is 4WD access only-when in doubt, walk ahead and find out what the track conditions are like.
