Mining

Holders of mining permits can apply to access our land to undertake exploration and other mining activities.

Please note that a mining permit from NZ Petroleum and Minerals does not confer permission to access the land. For our properties, a separate access arrangement must be agreed to by the Minister for Land Information.  We act on behalf of the Minister in considering these applications for mining access arrangements.

If you wish to apply for an access arrangement over our land, you should contact us at crownproperty@linz.govt.nz.  Fees and rent may be payable. 

More information on mining permits and Crown-owned minerals in New Zealand can be found on the NZ Petroleum and Minerals website.
