Have your say on new minerals licence applications
An applicant for a licence must advertise that the application is open for public comment in accordance with the Advertising Guideline. The advertisement contains information about the proposed work, along with details on how members of the public can comment on the application. This information should also be available on the individual’s or entity’ website.
Public input is central to how Earth Resources Regulation administers licence applications under the Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990. We invite public comment on mining, exploration, retention and prospecting licence applications and maintain a list of applications that are currently open for public comment.
GeoVic is also available to help build your own earth resource related maps, search for minerals licences and access data, using a huge range of sources.
