Mining Act Fees and Charges
The current mining tenement fees and charges are effective from 02 February 2013.
The Department of Mines and Petroleum’s (DMP) Mining Act fees and charges can now be paid at the Customer Service Counter Perth and regional offices by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFTPOS) or credit card. At this stage mining tenement rentals cannot be made by credit card.
You are currently able to order and pay for official tenement searches and data extracts, pay mining tenement rentals and lodge various Mining Act forms online using the Department's Mineral Titles Online system.
The Department of Mines and Petroleum accepts Visa and Mastercard. A credit card limit of $25,000 applies per transaction.
If the transaction limit of $25,000 is exceeded then the transaction will be rejected. This is important to note because applications such as Exploration Licences secure priority in time by satisfying the initial requirements of the legislation, including payment of fees.
