28th May 2019

The NSW Resources Regulator has lifted the suspension notices previously issued  for two exploration licences held by mining companies Total Mineral Pty Ltd and Total Iron Pty Ltd.

On 5 December 2018 Exploration Licences 8625 and 8635 were suspended due to a number of serious compliance issues being identified during an inspection. Statutory notices were also issued to the companies requiring remedial actions be carried out.

Following completion of the remedial actions and verification through further site inspection, on 24 May 2019 the Regulator revoked the suspension notices.

The Resources Regulator will continue to monitor compliance with exploration licences 8625 and 8635, and take appropriate compliance action where required.
