Land Management

Land access can become something of an afterthought in the planning of an exploration program. If neglected or improperly planned, land access issues can have a serious negative impact on the ability to complete exploration programs on time and within budget.

Geos Mining has broad experience in liaising with landholders. With a dedicated Land Manager, who has a strong rural background, Earthworks Supervisor and Senior Geologists with many years of experience, Geos Mining provides access solutions for mineral explorers in all settings of Australia.

Cultural heritage and native title issues, rehabilitation management and continuous communication with stakeholders are all aspects of the Geos Mining exploration management system.

To properly manage landholder liaisons, Geos Mining utilises a customized version of Consultation Manager, also known as Land Manager.

Land Manager offers:

  • Centralised administration: administering all landholder liaisons from a single interface.
  • Geographic collaboration: empowering personnel both in the office and project sites to access the system simultaneously.
  • Time and cost savings: reducing countless hours of effort through the efficiency of data entry, searching and reporting.
  • Improved accountability: enabling transparency of landholder concerns and issues.
  • No user limits: allowing access to as many users as required.
