Application process flowcharts for different land tenures

The flow charts below detail the processes and requirements for applying for a mineral title over the different types of land tenure in the Northern Territory.

The land tenure affects the way an application is processed, and you need to follow different steps depending on the tenure. The tenure can also affect the length of time it takes for a title to be granted.

The notes in red on each document refer to sections of the Mineral Titles Act.
