Code of Practice for Low Risk Mines
A draft version of the Code of Practice for Low Risk Mines is now open for public consultation. The Code has been developed in response to amendments to the Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990 (the Act) which will mean that low risk mines may be able to operate under the Code rather than lodging a work plan. The amendments to the Act will come into effect on 1 November 2014.
