Open File Tenement Reports

 Under Victorian legislation, mineral explorers are required to report annually on their exploration projects. After a period of confidentiality, the reports and data are made publicly available. These are referred to as open-file reports.

More detailed information about licensee reporting is available at Minerals Data and Oil and Gas Data.
