Always in our hearts and minds, Rita Bentley (OAM) who passed away 15th July 2020.
Her amazing lifetime devotion to fight for our rights to maintain access to our public forests on behalf of all bush users as well as the members of PMAV.
The PMAV committee going forward will not lose sight of her efforts as a legacy for her marvellous contribution and dedication into the future.
Minelab, with the nationwide assistance of state organisations representing prospectors, compiled the first of its kind, economic report into prospecting within Australia.
With almost $1Billion in GDP and over 5500 full time jobs, governments would do well to remember our contribution to not only the economy, but to the social and mental health benefits many Australian families get from prospecting.
