WTRMP INVESTIGATION REPORTS
Under the Western Tasmanian Regional Minerals Program a number of reports were prepared by external consultants and MRT staff. These reports were published as part of the Tasmanian Geological Survey Record series and can be viewed or downloaded from the MRT website.
MINERAL EXPLORATION CODE OF PRACTICE
The first edition of the Mineral Exploration Code of Practice was issued in December 1990. Since then, the code has been updated, and will continue to be revised so as to remain a current and useful guide for explorers. We envisage that the Code will provide explorers with a useful "ready reference" guide to questions relating to all aspects of exploration.
QUARRY CODE OF PRACTICE
The Quarry Code of Practice has recently been published by the Department of Primary Industries, Water and Environment. The purpose of this code is to document acceptable safety and environmental guidelines for quarrying.
