      Hi Joshua,

      I can’t really recommend any of the known gold localities in the south. The four main ones are Adamsfield, Cygnet, Weld River and the far south. Adamsfield is tricky to get a permit for. Cygnet is mostly in private property. The far south occurrences wern’t ever very rich and most of the rivers are in the WHA these days, and I’ve never had any success in the Weld.

      It’s really worth driving out to the west coast or the north east. Permissions have been easier to get for me out west.
