Multi-million dollar relief package for explorers
Multi-million dollar relief package is now available (6 May 2020) to eligible exploration companies in Queensland to support them, on the road to recovery during this COVID 19 emergency.
The measures in the package include:
- a rent waiver for exploration permit or authority holders due between 1 April to 30 September 2020
- capping of all other fees and charges under the resource Acts at 2019–20 rates
- removal of application fee for special variations of authority to prospect work programs
- recognition that COVID-19 is an exceptional event that may require explorers to vary work programs
These measures are designed to help maintain the state’s pipeline of resources projects.
Exploration is the critical first step for the next generation of resource projects and this relief package is all about keeping exploration moving in Queensland.
