Application for an environmental mining licence
Without a licence from our Minister of Economic Affairs it is prohibited to erect a mining work or to continue its existance. This prohition does not apply to mining works belonging to a category that is exempted from this prohibition by or by virtue of an order in council and for which that order in council sets rules for the protection of the environment (Mining Act article 40, clause 2 in conjunction with Mining Regulation sub-chapters 1.2 and 1.4).
The most efficient way to satisfy this requirement and therefore avoid any possible delay in the authorisation process is for Licencees to send the document to:
1. Ministerie van Economische Zaken en Klimaat, Directie Transitie Diepe Ondergrond, Postbus 20401, 2500 EK, Den Haag and
2. the digital version to firstname.lastname@example.org.
