MT. CELIA IS SITUATED SOME 210 KILOMETERS NORTH EAST OF KALGOORLIE IN THE NORTH EAST GOLDFIELDS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA ON THE NOW ABANDONED MOUNT CELIA STATION.  REDCASTLE IS A FURTHER 72 KILOMETERS FURTHER NORTH ALONG THE OLD LINDEN ROAD BETWEEN LEONORA & LAVERTON.  THESE TWO AREAS PRODUCED A LARGE AMOUNT OF GOLD OVER THE YEARS & THE AREA IS STILL BEING WORKED TODAY.

A W.A. MINER'S RIGHT &  PERMISSION IS REQUIRED TO PROSPECT ON THE LIVE & ACTIVE TENEMENTS IN THIS AREA IF YOU WISH TO LOOK FOR GOLD.  RECENTLY A GROUP OF US DID SOME METAL DETECTING HERE WITH MODERATE SUCCESS, HOWEVER THE GROUND HAS BEEN RE-WORKED MANY TIMES, SO THE NUGGETS REMAINING ARE FEW & FAR BETWEEN.  A LOT OF PATIENCE & TIME IS REQUIRED IF YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO FIND GOLD HERE.  THIS IS REMOTE OUTBACK COUNTRY SO YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED PROPERLY IF YOU WISH TO VISIT.  WATER IS SCARCE & THE TERRAIN IS ROUGH. IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO INFORM SOMEONE OF YOUR INTENTIONS, & THE PROJECTED TIME OF RETURN.
