If you are a titleholder or owner of a mining site and intend to appoint an operator you will need to nominate an operator.
An owner of a mining site may either nominate an operator or can be the operator themselves.
If you appoint an operator, you must include a condition that the operator must:
- before mining activities are carried out on the mining site, the operator must establish a management system for the site
- while mining activities are carried out on the site, the operator must implement and maintain the management system.
