Lodge your complaint with Ministers Lynham and Enoch to demand "why does the QLD Fossicking Act discriminate against recreational prospectors from enjoying this licenced recreational activity in QLD State Forest like any other permitted recreational activity? Please fix broken State Forest access laws for prospectors."
