Mining Matters

The sub-division of prospecting and mining rights conundrum

Many of the prospecting and mining rights (rights) granted by the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) (formerly the Department of Minerals and Energy) cover two or more portions of land. Thus for example, one prospecting right may have been granted over Farm A, Farm B and Farm C. This is particularly so in regard to many converted rights where several prospecting or mining areas were included in a single conversion application for administrative or other practical considerations.
