You might have received an entry notice from a mining or exploration company proposing to carry out preliminary activities on your property such as scouting or flora and fauna investigations. This might have already occurred and now the company wants to undertake advanced exploration activities such as seismic surveying or core hole drilling.
Alternatively, things might have progressed beyond that and now actual mining is proposed on your property.
In any of these situations, and whether you perceive the company’s interest in your land as an opportunity or a threat, it is crucially important that you are aware of your rights.
