The special permits for mineral resources using
In Ukraine the mineral resources using is strictly regulated by the Government. For using of mineral resources, it is compulsory to have a special permit (license) for mineral resources. The Act of Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine #316 from 30th of May 2011 prescribes the procedure of providing permits for mineral resources using. Special permission for mineral resources using is a document allowing mineral resources using, conducting geological explorations and commercial and research developments of mineral resources deposits, underground waters, constructing and using underground constructions for storage of oil and gas, and, actually, conducting oil and gas mining.
At general, the special permits for mineral resources using nominally can be divided on two groups:
The first group of special permits for subsoil use includes the permits for mineral resources mining and geological exploration of mineral resources.
Permission for mineral resources using for the purpose of geological exploration can be only for geological exploration (issued for 3 years) and geological exploration including industrial research and development of mineral resources deposits (issued for the period from five up to 10 years). Permission for geological exploration of mineral resources of local importance means exclusively geological explorations, not mining of mineral resources. For mining of mineral resources of local importance is required the permit for mineral resources mining. To mine the mineral resources of national significance the business entity can by the rights of permission for mineral resources including industrial research and development of mineral resources deposits.
Permit for mineral resources mining is issued for 20 years and for 30 years for oil and gas mining from coastal shelf of Ukraine. However, to obtain such permission, the business entity has to provide information on executed geological exploration of mineral resources. Only having these documents could be issued the permit for mineral resources mining. If there are no data on conducted geological explorations, so at first it required to obtain permission for geological exploration for approval of mineral resources in the State Commission for the Reserves of Mineral Resources of Ukraine.
The second group of permits for mineral resources using not related with mining of mineral resources includes the construction and maintenance of underground structures for storage of oil and gas; development of geological territories of scientific, recreational and cultural meaning; disposal of waste and dangerous substances.
Therefore, the process of obtaining permission for mineral resources using with passing all compulsory state services and organizations, the right execution of package of documents is required enough time and knowledge, so it is better to delegate this for specialists with corresponded long-term experience in the sphere of land use.
