The Otago Rock and Mineral Club

As the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to evolve and to protect the health of our club members the committee has decided to cancel club meetings and field trips for APRIL and MAY.
Please make contact via the clubs email if you have any queries.

A timely reminder - Recent issues have arisen from rockhounds, or so called rockhounds, entering private property around the Mt Barossa, Clent Hills, Woolshed Creek and the
 Mt Somers area. 
These so called rockhounds are causing land damage, disturbing stock and
most upsetting threatening owners and their property.
True rockhounds do not do this!
If you are going onto private land ask the land owners permission
If the answer is no respect the owners decision and move on.
Not being able to locate the landowner does not give you the right to enter the property.
The Police, Landowners, DOC are monitoring these areas physically and with the aid of
electronic monitoring equipment.

NOTE Collecting from Mt Somers Station and Gawler Downs is now not permitted.
