Exploration is the process of searching for unusual concentrations of the earth’s natural resources, including its minerals, rocks for construction materials and coal for use in daily life. Minerals are found at very few locations and accumulations of minerals at sufficient concentrations to be viably mined are extremely rare and difficult to find. For the most up to date information about exploration, please visit the link below from the NSW Government:
Land Access (NSW)
Mineral exploration licences are granted by the NSW government as the owner of the minerals, rock and coal. Mining is not allowed under an exploration licence.
All explorers must have a written land access agreement with the landowner before they can enter a property and carry out any exploration. By agreement between the NSW Government, the NSW Minerals Council and the NSW Farmers a modern standard template for land access is available.
