You must apply at least 90 days before the permit expires.
|Change conditions including transition to the next stage, with or without changes|
To amend the conditions of a permit, you must apply at least 90 days before a permit condition is due.
If the Minister is satisfied there are compelling reasons why the permit holder could not comply with the above timeframe, the application may be received at a later date, but not later than the condition due date.
Unless for secondary deliverables, in which case no fee.
Appraisal extensions will only be granted for an exploration permit where a discovery is made during the current term of the permit and there is insufficient time to appraise the discovery.
|This form is to be used to apply for a partial surrender of a permit. For full surrenders, please use form APP-03.
Please note that partial surrenders take effect on the date application is accepted, i.e. when the Minister makes the decision not on the day the application is lodged with NZP&M.
Partial surrenders may not be accepted where there is money or reports owing on the permit.
The surrender of a permit does not release the permit participant from any liability in respect of the permit up to the date of the surrender or any act under the permit up to the date of surrender giving rise to a cause of action.
Note: The form must be accompanied by a copy or copies of
