42A Authorisation of geophysical surveys on adjacent land


The Minister may, subject to such conditions as the Minister thinks fit to impose, grant written authorisation to a permit holder to carry out geophysical surveys on land adjacent to the land to which the permit relates if another permit is not in force in relation to that adjacent land.


An authorisation granted under this section—

does not authorise any activity other than the carrying out of geophysical surveys.
