Project Woodlawn


Develop implements an Environmental Management System with the objective of minimizing environmental risk and seeking to capitalise on the environmental opportunities presented by the project.

A strong focus of our operation is striving to meet the expectations of our local community. The minimum acceptable level of environmental performance is compliance with all regulatory obligations.

Rehabilitation Management


The purpose of exploration is to locate areas where mineral and petroleum resources may be present, to establish the quality and quantity of those resources, and to investigate the viability of extracting the resource.

Before exploring for minerals or petroleum in NSW, an explorer must be granted an Exploration Licence (EL) or an Assessment Lease (AL) under the Mining Act 1992 or a Petroleum Exploration Licence (PEL) or an Petroleum Assessment Lease (PAL) under the Petroleum (Onshore) Act 1991 by the Department of Regional NSW.

Before a prospecting title holder can access land for exploration, a written land access arrangement must be in place between the landholder and the title holder.
