Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Crown Minerals Amendment Bill—

  • to align the wording used in new section 42A(2)(b) in clause 11 (which relates to geophysical surveys) with the wording used in section 42A(1) of the Crown Minerals Act 1991:

  • to renumber the transitional provisions that will be inserted into the Crown Minerals Act 1991. The renumbering is needed as a result of the Crown Minerals (Petroleum) Amendment Act 2018 coming into force before this Bill is enacted:

  • to clarify that the transitional provision in clause 23 in the Schedule applies only to contracts or arrangements that have or will have the effect of a corporate body undergoing a change of control.
