Temporary suspension of staking and map designation rights
Before the provisions concerning reservation to the State, withdrawal from mining activities, mining-incompatible territories and classification as an outstanding geological site come into force, the Department may temporarily suspend staking and map designation rights for a period of six months. The suspension may then be renewed for subsequent periods of six months.
Boundaries of areas subject to temporary suspensions
The boundaries of areas subject to temporary suspensions are shown on the map of mining titles published in GESTIM.
Impacts of temporary suspension
- Prospecting and staking and map designation of claims are prohibited.
- Leases to mine surface mineral substances (e.g. sand and gravel) are also prohibited.
