Mining & Exploration

Council has recently received requests from the public as to their rights and responsibilities when they are approached by companies looking at undertaking mining or petroleum/gas exploration on their properties.

Council advises that it is not the authority that deals with exploration licences. This is a State Government responsibility under the various Mining Acts.
