When you finish prospecting, you should:
- remove rubbish and leave the area clean and tidy
- check holes have been filled to help maintain the environment and stop fauna from becoming trapped or injured
- if on a pastoral lease, notify pastoralists and any other landowners you are leaving
- if prospecting on a mining tenement, advise tenement holders you have finished.
If you find gold or other minerals and want to apply for a mining tenement, refer to marking out and applying for a mining tenement.
