Resources Regulation

We have experience working with resources legislation specific to projects in and offshore Western Australia.  We can assist you to interpret your rights and obligations under resources legislation and to prepare submissions and other correspondence to regulators.

Our experience includes regulation specific to the following sectors.


We are familiar with the mining regime under the Mining Act 1978 (WA) and its regulations, including land open for mining and tenement rights and obligations.  We have particular experience working with the environmental regulation under the mining regime, including mine closure plans and rehabilitation obligations, and the Mining Rehabilitation Fund Act 2012 (WA).  We also have some experience working with mining safety regulation.

Oil and Gas

We have extensive experience interpreting the obligations under the environmental and safety regimes under the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act 2006 (Cth).  In particular, we can assist you to prepare and review environment plans and determine rights and obligations under the legislation and those documents.

Extractive Industry

Regulation of the extractive industry in Western Australia depends on the type of land on which it is located.  We are familiar with the mining regulations as applicable to the extractive industry on Crown land and the local government regulation on other land through the planning regime and local by-laws.  We can assist you to interpret the regulatory rights and obligations of the extractive industry.
