A mining lease can also be applied for by the holder over their current prospecting, exploration, or retention licence (Sections 49, 69, 70C(6)). To consolidate granted mining leases or general purpose leases a new mining lease can be applied for by the holder. Conditional surrenders will be required in this instance.

A mining lease for gold can be applied for by the holder over their special prospecting licence (Sections 56A(8), 70(8), 85B(7))
