Current Mining Licences and Leases

Regions showing the extent of Mining Licences currently lodged with Earth Resources Regulations. The boundaries are derived from a combination of entering graticular boundaries (exact AMG co-ordinates) and digitizing along areas of land status (Earth Resources version of landmmt100) which are unable to be mined or explored. Refer to the Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act (MRSDA) 1990 for more detail. (MIN is included in ML)
