Mining environmental reports

Exploration mining operations in the Northern Territory (NT) must be authorised by the NT Government under the Mining Management Act (MMA). Read the law.

One of the conditions under the act is that the operator releases a public report of their activities.

The public report consists of the operator's exploration mining plan excluding any commercial in confidence material.

The report will be released upon approval of the mining management plan and published on the operator's website.

This change has been made in order to reduce the amount of government reporting required of industry.
