Application for exploration licence 74/135, Ravensthorpe Range

Proposal description: 

This proposal is one of a group of applications for mineral exploration tenements for which a formal level of assessment was set by the Environmental Protection Authority under the Government's former policy (known as "Balancing the Scales", 1988) on exploration in environmentally sensitive areas. The former policy has now been replaced by a new policy entitled "Resolution of Conflict - A Clear Policy for National Parks", 1990. The Environmental Protection Authority's approach to the assessment of exploration proposals in environmentally sensitive areas under the new policy requires the Department of Mines to impose conditions on the tenement which exclude significant ground-disturbing activities. If the tenement holder wishes to significantly disturb the ground he must prepare a plan for approval to describe the disturbance proposed, its location and his plans to manage any environmental impacts.
