Conflicting land and title tenure
This page has information on applying for mineral or energy titles on land with conflicting tenures and titles.
Conflicting land tenure
You cannot apply for a mineral or energy title that covers both Aboriginal freehold and native title affected land.
If you want to apply for an area that covers both types of land tenure you will need to make separate applications so they can be processed under the appropriate laws.
All other land tenure types can be grouped into one application.
In some instances, certain types of mineral or energy titles cannot be applied for over existing titles or an application for a title. The table below shows details of applications for certain types of mineral titles.
