Landholders information

The below guidelines have been prepared for the information of owners and occupiers of private land that may be impacted by an earth resources industry. These guidelines contain frequently asked questions and are intended as a guide only. They do not replace legislation.

Information sessions

DEDJTR may organise and run information sessions for communities, local government or other organisations and groups interested in how the earth resources industry is regulated.

Information sessions aim to respond to stakeholder questions about legislation and government policy relating to the earth resources industry. Information sessions are generally offered in response to industry developments, significant legislative change or heightened community interest but may be offered on request. If you are interested in an information session, please contact the Program Manager, Community Engagement on (03) 9092 1965.

Introduction to the Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990

The Victorian Division of the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA Victoria) and the Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) have compiled the Introduction to the Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990. It aims to simply answer common questions about the MRSDA and may be useful for a quick reference. The 2017 update is the third version of the guide, which was first published in 2000 and updated in 2008. You can download the 2017 update from the Minerals Council of Australia website.

Please note that this should be used as a guide only and not as a substitute for the Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990 (MRSDA) or for legal advice.
