After a mineral title has been granted
The type of mineral title granted will govern what you have to do to comply with the conditions and requirements of the title.
There are some common requirements that may apply including:
- payment of annual rent and administration fees
- submission of a mining management plan to obtain authorisation under the Mining Management Act to carry out any exploration or mining activities that could cause substantial disturbance.
In the case of an extractive mineral exploration licence there is no requirement to pay ongoing rent, administration fees or lodge reports. There is no provision to renew this type of title either.
Council or Shire rates
Titles that do not relate to exploration may be assessed for Local Council or Shire rates after grant.
To be assessable for rates a title must also have an authorisation granted under the Mining Management Act.
Contact your local government office for more information.
