Expression of Interest to Access Limestone
Expressions of Interest are being sought on behalf of the Minister for Mines and Petroleum (the Minister) in order to permit him to invite two interested parties to each apply for a small mining lease for the extraction of limestone and for a related miscellaneous licence.
