Guidance Note 01

GNM-001

This guidance note has been issued by NSW DPI to assist industry in fulfilling its statutory obligations as outlined in the Mine Health and Safety Act 2004 and Mine Health and Safety Regulation 2007.

The concept of a Mine Holding is to be removed from the Mine Health and Safety Act 2004 through amendments that are proposed for the Mining Act 1992. Schedule 1 clause 5 of the Mine Health and Safety Act will not be commenced and will ultimately be repealed.

Accordingly, areas within mining leases will not be able to be registered as a mine holding under the Mining Act. The duty to nominate an operator will be based upon the right to mine
held by the mine holder. This guidance note has been prepared on the basis that the position outlined above will be finalised and the concept of mine holdings will be removed from the
Mine Health and Safety Act.
