Mineral exploration

Guide to mineral exploration in the Northern Territory

Before you apply for an exploration licence you should read the guide to mineral exploration in the Northern Territory (NT).

The guide provides an overview of legislative requirements in the NT, from applying for an exploration licence through to operational requirements after grant.

It is not a statutory document, but will help you to understand more about:

  • land tenure
  • landowner notifications
  • general rights and conditions of a granted exploration licence
  • when a mining management plan (MMP) is required and how to develop.

The guide complements the code of conduct for mineral explorers in the NT DOCX (1.7 MB).
