This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on the 28th day after the date of their notification in the Gazette,—
•prescribe an application fee of $2,500 for any application under section 36 of the Crown Minerals Act 1991. This fee of $2,500 already applies to an application under that section for a change to a permit area and an application for a change to a permit work programme. This amendment means that the fee will apply to all of the applications that may be made under that section:
•amend the wording of the fee for an application for the Minister's consent under section 41 of that Act, to ensure that the fee will apply to all of the applications for Ministerial consent under that section.
