Tenders and acreage releases
From time to time we make resources available for commercial development via tenders and releases.
In 2018 this included the strategic release of ground for a specific program of minerals exploration, the Stavely Ground Release. In 2019, a similar process will apply for the North Central Victorian Goldfields Ground Release and those details will be available on this page.
Current: North Central Victorian Goldfields Ground Release
Coordinate system projection – GDA94 MGA Zone55
Gas tenders are executed under the heading of petroleum. The 2018 tender was focused on gas exploration only. Permits are scheduled to be announced in mid-2019.
There are currently no gas acreage releases open.
