Current exploration release areas
The exploration release system offers newly available ground at a nominated date, at least two months after expiry, revocation or surrender of a licence. During that time the area is unavailable for application.
After the end of the moratorium period applications may be lodged, for Exploration Licences or Mining Leases, by courier, registered mail or in person for the whole or part of the ERA.
Listed below are the current exploration release areas.
