David Salim, Benjamin Muscat and Sarah W. are looking forward to NSW Minerals Council‘s industry-leading HSEC Conference next week. Hetherington is a proud sponsor of the HSEC lunches and we can’t wait to catch up with colleagues and friends.
Great to catch up with our clients and network at the NSW Minerals Council HSEC Conference. Really powerful sessions on a range of critical topics, such as the importance of health and safety and mental fitness. The environmental and communication sessions were also highlights. Well done NSW Minerals Council for another great event!
We had such a great time at the Diggers & Dealers Mining Forum. Great speakers, great networking, great backdrop!
The Australian Government has announced 10 release areas under the 2022 Offshore Petroleum Exploration Acreage Release, offshore of the Northern Territory, Western Australia, the Territory of the Ashmore and Cartier Islands, and Victoria.
Applicants are now able to bid on the new release areas up until Thursday, 2 March 2023.
The National Offshore Petroleum Titles Administrator has published a series of guidelines and factsheets that should be referred to by applicants looking to make bids on the new release areas, along with relevant provisions of the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act 2006 (Cth).
Yesterday’s decision by the WA Mining Warden in relation to True Fella Pty Ltd v Pantoro South Pty Ltd has the potential to impact the validity of exploration licences and exploration licence applications across the State. It provides a good example of the increasing regulatory uncertainty faced by industry and the importance of a robust administrative framework.
We’re hoping to see a formal response from the Minister and DMIRS to find out what the decision means for security of tenure in WA relatively soon.
In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns about the impact this decision may have on your existing tenements.
It was a pleasure to attend the SMEDG 50th Golden Jubilee conference yesterday to celebrate the groups’ 50 year anniversary. Hetherington was delighted to sponsor students from the UNSW to attend the event.
If you missed the 2022 NSW Minerals Council Women in Mining Awards, a free webinar will be held on Wednesday the 14th September at 1pm to hear the winners stories. We’re especially excited for Hetherington‘s Tamara Woods to share her story on winning the Exceptional Young Woman Award.
