Summary of Operations and Expenditure

Salaries and own labour costs (for individuals) should be claimed against the relevant activity being undertaken (and not claimed as a separate item). e.g. a proportion of the expenditure claimed against drilling would include any related salaries and labour costs for that drilling over the relevant period. Claims for own labour expenditure must be substantiated by records of hours worked, rates of pay and qualifications and experience.
Items that can be claimed as office-based activities include:
  • literature search;
  • database compilation;
  • computer modelling;
  • reprocessing of data;
  • general research;
  • geological and geophysical interpretation;
  • pre resource/reserve calculation;
  • report preparation, including the expenditure and activities return and mineralisation report.

Items that cannot be claimed as office-based activities include:

  • insurance,
  • fees and rental under the Act,
  • bonds,
  • legal expenses,
  • advertising,
  • title searches,
  • fines,
  • company expenses such as fund raising, financing costs, listing and prospectus preparation.
  • land access compensation (paid to both private land owners and traditional owners),
  • permitting expenses (such as application fees under other Acts, water studies, heritage surveys and flora and fauna surveys), and
  • tenement management.

Indicate where work has been done with a “tick” and the corresponding expenditure. Tick the right-hand columns to indicate the data supplied with the Technical Report.
