The table below represents a list of instruments which are proposed to be included in the new Mining Register. DEM is seeking your feedback in relation to the attached list of instruments and the proposed public availability of the information.

The instruments are broken down in three categories, those that:

  • have specific requirements of the Mining Act (for example Section 15AG(1) of the Mining Act which includes Registerable Dealings such as Agreements)
  • are prescribed by being set out in Schedule 1 of the draft Mining Regulations 2020 (for example an instrument providing for the renewal of a mining tenement)
  • have discretionary information the Mining Registrar can include on the Mining Register in accordance with section 15AA (3) of the Mining Act (for example a copy of evidence of public liability insurance).

The table should be read in conjunction with other explanatory documents related to the Mining Register found on the Update on mining regulations 2020 page of this website.

More specific detail about the intent of the changes to the Mining Register and detail about some of the more complex instruments such as the various dealings, caveats and mortgages is provided in Package 2 – Explanatory Document about the Mining Register and Information, Data and Release (PDF)

The information on this web page can also be downloaded as a PDF: Draft regulations for Instruments to appear on the Mining Register (PDF)
