Mining Act up for review

Member for Flinders Peter Treloar is urging primary producers to make use of an extension on a review of the Mining Act, to have their say on proposed changes.

The review provides an opportunity to modernise the laws established in 1971, including the regulations on engagement, negotiation and court processes between landowners and the mineral resources industry.

“The granting of further exploration tenements across the State will mean continuing interaction between landowners, exploration companies and Government,” Mr Treloar said.

“This review should provide an opportunity to put in place improved processes and best practice.”

The deadline for submissions has been extended to February 24, after taking harvest activities into consideration.
