#mining #news #exploration #applications

The Department of Mines and Petroleum received the highest number of exploration Programme of Work applications for a March quarter since 2012 and the second-highest since 2009 – when the department first started releasing Approval Performance reports.

Programme of Work applications must be approved before exploration can start, which means it is a good indicator of planned exploration activity on the ground.

Across the March quarter, the department received 1,679 approval applications from the minerals sector and 183 from the petroleum and geothermal sector.
