APLA maintains that prospecting is both our heritage and our future.
APLA was formed in 1904 at a gold-rush site south of Kalgoorlie-Boulder by amalgamating a number of existing prospecting groups into one representative body with the aim to protect and further the interests of prospectors .
Now over a century later we haven't lost sight of the aims of our founders. APLA is a peak industry group in Western Australia and is well recognised nationally as a key player in the prospecting and mining industries. Read more about APLA...
