Mining Act fees and charges

Mining act fees and charges

The current mining tenement fees and charges are effective from 01 July 2017.

The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) Mining Act fees and charges can now be paid at the Customer Service Counter Perth and regional offices by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFTPOS) or credit card.

You are currently able to order and pay for official tenement searches and data extracts, pay mining tenement rentals and lodge various Mining Act forms online using the Department's Mineral Titles Online system. The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety accepts Visa and Mastercard. A credit card limit of $99,999 applies per transaction.

If the transaction limit of $99,999 is exceeded then the transaction will be rejected. This is important to note because applications such as Exploration Licences secure priority in time by satisfying the initial requirements of the legislation, including payment of fees.
