Report mineral production

If you hold a mineral lease (ML), extractive mineral permit (EMP) or an extractive mineral lease (EML), you must lodge a production report covering each financial year (July to June).

Currently the department only requires reports on mineral titles authorised under the Mining Management Act to mine minerals or extractive minerals. Reports on MLs granted for purposes ancillary to mining are not required.

The report must include the total amounts mined and sold throughout the year by commodity.

What must be reported

The production reports must be in the approved format and include the units of measure.

Read more information on reporting in the following guideline:

One form is required for each group of titles included in a single authorisation under the Mining Management Act, but the production figures must be reported separately for each title within the group.

When to report

Production reports are due two weeks after the end of the financial year period being reported on.

Information available to the public

Individual production reports are not released to the public. Summaries of the total production and sales amounts for each of the commodity categories are published each year.

The summary is published in the department’s annual report. The summary data is also available in the mineral production statistics. Go to the Department of Primary Industry and Resources website for the annual reports and mineral production statistics.
