Extractive Industry Licence - Western Australia

Service summary

You will require this licence if you intend to operate an extractive industry. An extractive industry involves the quarrying and excavation of stone, gravel, clay, limestone loam and other materials. This includes activities associated with the extraction process, such as:

  • Stripping vegetation and top soil;
  • Stockpiling, excavating and earthworks;
  • Loading of trucks and associated vehicle movements; and
  • Blasting rehabilitation.

This licence is required for all land other than Crown land. However, it does not apply to the extraction of minerals authorised under mining legislation, or to a land owner extracting materials from their own land whose sole purpose is to use those materials on that land. You may also be required to obtain planning approval to operate your extractive industry.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
