Restricted and Unavailable Crown Land for Mining and/or Exploration

Land where special permission must be obtained for Mining and/or Exploration.

This layer was developed for land classification for the Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990

This layer is derived mostly from selections from Public Land Management PLM25. Other sources of data include PLM100_V_MMT_WILDLIFE_MGMT for wildlife reserves, PLM100_V_MMT_HERITAGE_RIVER for heritage rivers, PLM100_V_MMT_NATRL_CATCHMENT for natural catchemnt area and PLM100_V_MMT_REFERENCE_AREAS for reference areas.

The dataset PLM25_MRSDA is an amalgamation of features defined by: Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990 - SCHEDULE 3 Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990 - SECT 6 Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990 - SECT 7

The GeoVic3 layers: Restricted Crown Land (MRSDA) Unavailable Crown Land (MRSDA) and Unavailable S7 Exempt Areas (MRSDA)

are subsets from the layer PLM25_MRSDA.

Geospatial Accuracy Good Polygons within PLM25_MRSDA are derived from multiple sources: - Most features have been extracted from PLM25. PLM25 Accuracy varies: Vicmap parcels (1:2,500 - 1:25,000) - Digital certified plan boundaries for areas recently scheduled under the National Parks Act 1975 at (1:25,000) - Boundaries digitised by the Parks and Protected Areas Branch (based on 1:25,000 topography) - PLM100_POLYGON (1:100,000) Features in PLM25_MRSDA not extracted from PLM25, have been extracted from PLM100_POLYGON datasets (1:100,000). These feature are Wildlife reserves, heritage rivers, natural catchemnt area and reference areas.
