Tenement details may not appear for the following reasons:
• The tenement may have expired or been surrendered (PEPRs cannot be approved on tenements that have expired or been surrendered)
• Your tenement application may not have been granted (PEPRs can only be approved on granted tenements)
Your company name may not appear for the following reasons:
• You are not the tenement holder
• You may be waiting for a transfer of ownership of the tenement to be finalised
This information is sourced from DSDs database and is read only (i.e. cannot be changed within the form).
To update your contact details contact DSD, Mineral Tenements and Exploration Branch on (08) 8463 3103.
Before submitting an application you must first validate the form by pressing the “Validate” button located at the top right-hand corner of the EPEPR application page.
You must also ensure that all sections of the PEPR have been completed. This will be displayed by a green tick appearing next to each section of the form. Where a section of the form is not complete, a circle with a red cross will appear.
A pop-up box will appear saying that you have successfully submitted the application. An email will also be sent to the address provided in the “Key Contact” section of the application. A copy of your application (.pdf version) will also be attached to the email.
The online process has been designed so that an application cannot be amended and resubmitted during the assessment process.
Each time you submit or resubmit (following an information request) your application, a copy of the PEPR will be attached to the email confirming the application has been successfully submitted.
At this stage the online process does not include the functionality to request a time extension. If a time extension is required, the applicant can use the previously approved PEPR to create a new application. Once the application is modified accordingly, it can then be resubmitted.
The “My forms” section in the “My EPEPR forms” page will indicate when the PEPR is approved.
