Minerals and coal reporting guideline (2019)
On 28 June 2019 we released a new reporting guideline for coal and mineral resource authorities. The new guideline details requirements for annual and final reports, partial relinquishment and partial surrender reports, and expenditure statements.
While the new guideline is not yet mandatory, we encourage you to begin using it ahead of regulatory changes expected to take effect after July 2020.
We will be working closely with industry to seek feedback and improve the guideline and templates, if required. The guideline is expected to become mandatory in July 2020.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help or to provide feedback.

Developed in close consultation with industry, the new guideline improves the collection and management of geoscience information by:
- providing clear specifications for submitting raw or native data
- defining reporting requirements as ‘mandatory’ (minimum) or ‘best practice’
- providing guidance on best practice reporting.
Some of the key changes being introduced include:
- standardised templates for submitting key data and metadata
- production reporting by month
- reduced reporting of duplicate information and low-value interpretive requirements
- expanded reporting of reserves and resources.
