Licence holders submit exploration reports and data on the activities carried out under a prospecting licence. These reports and data are held confidentially for 6 years or until licence surrender, whichever is the sooner. After 6 years or upon surrender of the licence, the data is released publicly via our
Map viewer and a searchable database.
The interactive Mapviewer displays current Prospecting Licence ground status, drillhole data, publically available data and the location of available airborne geophysical survey data. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request airborne geophysical data.
