News and Notices

As of 1 July 2015, the Department has introduced a new Landowner Notification form (Approved form 24) that is to be used when notifying landowners of an Exploration Licence (EL) application. On notifying the landowner of your application, following the directions on the form, it will be sent to the Land Manager via the Department of Primary Industry and Fisheries email contact. This change will ensure you are able to notify the contact “on the ground”, providing more certain opportunities to discuss your planned activity on the EL once granted. For a copy of the Approved Form, factsheets and information bulletins, please click here.
