This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on the 28th day after the date of its notification in the Gazette, amends Schedule 4 of the Crown Minerals Act 1991 (the Act) by inserting descriptions of Crown land and internal waters to which section 61(1A) of the Act applies. This amendment means that the land and internal waters cannot be accessed for mineral-related activities, except in relation to those activities specified in section 61(1A)(a) to (e).
Section 61(1A) prohibits the Minister of Conservation from accepting any application for an access arrangement, and from entering into any access arrangement relating to any Crown owned mineral in any Crown owned land or internal waters described in Schedule 4 of the Act. Without this prohibition, the Minister would be entitled, under section 61(1), to enter into such access arrangements.
The amendments to clauses 6 to 9 correct minor errors in the schedule.
Date of notification in Gazette: 8 September 2011.
This order is administered by the Ministry of Economic Development.
