It is your responsibility to ensure that you have sufficient knowledge of the Aboriginal heritage values within your tenement so that you do not commit an offence under the Act.
To assist you to complete this section of the application, it is recommended that you refer to the Aboriginal heritage due diligence guidelines and conduct a search for Aboriginal sites and other heritage places within the area the application refers to.
