Western Australia

Overview

The state of Western Australia regulates mineral rights onshore and within 3 nautical miles of the shoreline.

The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) is responsible for administering mineral tenure and other acts to do with mining and industrial safety. There is a basic provisions guideline here (PDF), with the mineral titles home page here. There are also some useful Information Pamphlets here.

The schedule of fees and charges is located on this page.

The DMIRS Notice Board is here for notice of tenement applications, surrenders and withdrawals.
