New fees for permission to enter or disturb mining interests


August 16
11:33 2018

The changes to fees will take effect from 1 October 2018 and all fees will be inclusive of VAT.

Fees are determined by:

  • the area of application
  • the number of boreholes
  • the number of mine entries to be investigated or treated

The minimum fee for any application will be 111.00.

Area of application

For the area of application, the cost will be 111.00 per 0.1 hectare, up to a maximum of 2775.00 for 2.5 hectares or above.

Any number of shafts or adits within this area are included within the area fee.

Number of boreholes

Where boreholes are planned for initial investigation purposes only, these will be charged at 55.50 per borehole.

Should treatment then prove necessary, then a further application would be required to cover the whole treatment area at 111.00 per 0.1 hectare, but the initial application fee will be deducted from this.

Mine entries to be investigated or treated

Shaft and adit investigation or treatment will be charged at 111.00 each, when not included within the above applications.
