Date: Tuesday, 16 July 2019

New Guidelines for Mineral Exploration Reports on Mining Tenements were gazetted on 12 July 2019 following a period of consultation.

These guidelines replace the previous guidelines gazetted on 15 February 2016.

The new guidelines are designed to assist holders of mining tenements in Western Australia in the preparation and submission of mineral exploration reports to comply with section 115A of the Mining Act 1978.

Tenement holders and operators are reminded that it is their responsibility to file a mineral exploration report that complies with the reporting requirements under the Mining Act, including these gazetted guidelines.

Mineral exploration reports can be lodged online through the WAMEX Report Lodgement System on the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) website.
