Online information sessions are replacing our regular community meetings. We will return to meeting you in person when it’s safe to do so. In the meantime, we can have individual telephone discussions and hold small group meetings to address local concerns
Community Information Session – Stavely Block 4
Gippsland Prospecting Pty Ltd has been granted the fourth Minerals Exploration Licence from 2018’s Stavely Ground Release. The Victorian-based company will be searching for minerals in the area west of Ararat and Stawell (PDF - 13.3 MB)
, but not including the Grampians National Park.
To provide locals with a better understanding of minerals exploration activities and how the sector is regulated, the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions held online community information sessions in November.
Department representatives and Gippsland Prospecting Pty Ltd also outlined landholder rights and the obligations of exploration companies and presented a support tool available to assist landholders in discussions with minerals explorers about potential land access.
Meetings for small groups are offered to those who were unable to join these sessions and online refreshers to agricultural practitioners on the department’s land access consent tool.
