Submitted by nicholas.car on Fri, 26/04/2019 - 15:34

In general mineral or energy rights (resources) in Australia are reserved to the Crown. The acquisition of rights to minerals or energy stems from legislative frameworks in Queensland. These frameworks provide initially for exploration of the resource, and consist of the grant by the Crown in the form of exploration permits, licences or leases. Exploration permits, leases or licences permit works to be undertaken to determine the likely existence of minerals or resources. Actual mining is subject to a further grant of mining or minerals production leases or licences. The legislation also provides for the payment of royalties to the State and to compensate the owners or occupiers of the surface land
