Prospecting and Fossicking in Tasmania are for recreational or educational purposes.

These activities are for anyone interested in collecting samples of natural minerals. Tasmania has many areas in which a diverse range of rock and mineral specimens may be discovered.

We offer training days where you can come along and learn how to get the most out of your detector, talk to other enthusiasts and improve your skills.
