Mining

Anderson Lloyd is a leading provider of legal services to the mining industry.

Our experience includes:

  • minerals permit applications and compliance issues
  • strategic project consenting and development advice
  • land acquisition and access (including advice on the overseas investment regime and access to Crown land)
  • project risk assessment and due diligence
  • bonds and finance
  • health and safety
  • employment
  • mining contract advice

Our clients include New Zealand’s largest gold producer OceanaGold New Zealand – as well as many smaller mining and exploration companies, quarries and gravel harvesting operators, and industrial clients that mine as part of their operations.

The firm has been closely involved in leading projects, including OceanaGold’s Macraes, Reefton and Waihi mines. We regularly provide strategic advice to companies investigating mineral development opportunities in New Zealand. We have also been involved in both New Zealand’s marine mining proposals within the Exclusive Economic Zone – as a government-appointed decision-maker and as an advocate.
