The Mines Division’s Tenement Section is responsible for facilitating investor, business and individual applications for the following mineral rights on behalf of the Director of Mines:

Reconnaissance Permit


Mining Lease

Building Materials Permit

Special Site Permit

Road Access Permit

Gold Dealers

Alluvial Miners Permit

If the relevant standard fees for these applications are paid, the applications are then forwarded to the MMERE’s Mines and Minerals Board for consideration in accordance with the Mines and Minerals Act. The Minister for Mines is then informed of the Board’s recommendations and is ultimately responsible for granting the Mineral Rights.
