Consultation on the Draft Minerals and Petroleum Resource Strategy is now closed.

On August 27 2019 we released a consultation document titled “Responsibly Delivering Value – A Minerals and Petroleum Strategy for Aotearoa New Zealand: 2019-2029”. Consultation ended on 20 September 2019. The Minerals and Petroleum Resource Strategy is a 10-year strategy that articulates the Government’s long term vision for the minerals and petroleum sector in New Zealand and supports the transition to a low emissions future and a productive, sustainable and inclusive economy. The Strategy sets the direction for the sector – there are no policy commitments.

The Strategy will be used to inform a review of the Crown Minerals Act 1991. The review of the legislation is to ensure it is fit for purpose to meet the needs of all New Zealanders.

The draft Strategy sought feedback on how New Zealand can sustainably derive value from its petroleum and minerals resources asking questions around the following topics:

  • Strategy vision, objectives and principles
  • Modernising the Crown Minerals Act
  • Securing affordable resources to meet our minerals and energy needs
  • Improving Treaty partnership
  • Improving community and stakeholder engagement
  • Improving industry compliance
  • Research and investment in better mining and resource use

Consultation on the Draft Minerals and Petroleum Resource Strategy is now closed.
