Apply for a programme of work

The Mining Act 1978 requires that a Programme of Work (PoW) is lodged and approved before conducting any ground disturbing activities with mechanised equipment.
Last updated:

PoW-S is a spatial lodgement system which caters for all PoW applications using a spatial platform. PoW-S enables proponents to input the individual items of their Programme of Work directly into the spatial system and will prompt for required details based on the type of activity and its location. PoW-E and PoW-S applications are lodged online via the Environmental Assessment and Regulatory System (EARS Online).

PoW-P applications and Prospecting Rehabilitation Reports can be lodged in hardcopy format or online via Department of Mines and Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) submissions.
