Mining Queensland Law Handbook OnlineThe legal system in Queensland distinguishes between activities done for the purpose of winning a mineral from the ground and activities that merely involve extracting things from the ground for their nonmineral properties. Minerals are defined broadly under the Mineral Resources Act (s 6). Any activity done for the purpose of winning a mineral from the ground is regarded as mining and regulated under the mining regime. Seeking to extract minerals such as gold, silver and coal is regarded as mining and regulated under the Mineral Resources Act. In contrast, activities that involve extracting soil, sand, gravel or rock not for the purpose of obtaining minerals are regulated under the Sustainable Planning Act. Such activities are commonly called quarries or extractive industries. Rock, gravel and sand quarries are regulated by local governments under the Sustainable Planning Act and by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection under the Environmental Protection Act.

Miners must hold an appropriate form of authority or tenement under the Mineral Resources Act for exploration and mining. These provide the miner with access rights (even if the owner of the land does not agree to grant access) and other rights to use land in accordance with the tenement. There are five types of mining tenement provided in s 6D of the Mineral Resources Act: 1. prospecting permit 2. mining claim 3. exploration permit 4. mineral development licence 5. mining lease. Prospecting permits and mining claims generally (though not always) apply to relatively smallscale mining projects such as mining by hand or with limited machinery. Largescale mining typically involves longterm projects that proceed from exploration to extraction, and the regulatory regime reflects these stages. An exploration permit allows a mining company to access a large area to explore for minerals. The environmental impacts at this stage are relatively minor. If minerals are located that cannot be

Applications for an environmental authority for a mining or petroleum activity are divided into three different types: 1. standard applicationswhen an applicant can meet the eligibility criteria and all the standard conditions associated with an ERA. This application type is generally restricted to lowrisk activities and are not publicly notified except for applications involving a mining lease (s 149 Environmental Protection Act) 2. variation applicationswhen an applicant can meet the eligibility criteria but needs to change one or more of the standard conditions for an ERA 3. sitespecific applicationswhen an applicant does not meet the eligibility criteria for the ERA, where there are no eligibility criteria in existence or the activity is part of a coordinated project being assessed by the CoordinatorGeneral. These applications are subject to a wholeofproject assessment and include public notification. Standard conditions may be used in these approvals, however, it is lik

Not all mining activities undergo a formal Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process, but large mines generally will during the application process for a mining lease. Mines that are declared by the CoordinatorGeneral to be coordinated projectsunder the SDPWO Act undergo an EIS under that Act. The EIS is then used in assessing the application for a mining lease under the Mineral Resources Act and the application for an environmental authority under the Environmental Protection Act. Mines that are not declared to be coordinated projects but involve variation applications and sitespecific applications may also undergo an EIS under ch 3 of the Environmental Protection Act (s 143) but rarely do in practice. Generally, the EIS process involves draft terms of reference for the project being publicly notified, the preparation of the draft EIS, public notification of the draft EIS and preparation of a supplementary EIS in light of the public comments received.

There are a variety of requirements for notifying landholders, whose land is subject to a mining application, and the general public about such applications and any objection rights. Exploration for minerals and mining can occur on virtually any land in Queensland without the consent of the owner or leaseholder. However, landholders and others have certain rights to object to mining activities. Landholders affected by a mine generally also have a right to compensation for the loss of use of their land. The process for public notification and objection to a mining lease and environmental authority involves several interrelated steps. When an application for a mining lease is lodged with the Mining Registrar under the Mineral Resources Act and found to comply with the Act, a certificate of application is issued and given to each owner of the land that is the subject of the proposed mining lease and any land necessary for access to it (s 252 Mineral Resources Act). It may not be public

Any person may object to an application for a mining lease under the Mineral Resources Act and to an application for an environmental authority under the Environmental Protection Act. To provide a right of appeal to the Land Court, an objection or submission must be properly made during the objection period or the submission period. If a mining lease application undergoes an EIS, the objection period will generally occur immediately following the completion of the EIS. At this point the relevant Mining Registrar issues a certificate of public notice under s 252A of the Mineral Resources Act, which fixes the last objection day for lodging objections to the application. During the objection period, copies of the application documents are available for inspection at the relevant Mining Registry and the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection offices. To be properly made, an objection to the grant of a mining lease under the Mineral Resources Act must: 1. be made on or before
