Hi Ollie,
CSIRO has been working with the Office of Spatial Policy and NICTA to develop an information model for Administrative Boundaries (Foundation Spatial Data Framework - FSDF).

Although initially focussed on electoral, local government, statistical, maritime and post code boundaries, the principles could equally be applied to mineral exploration licenses (tenements), mining licenses and petroleum exploration permits.

The conceptual model (see below) allows  for defining an administrative unit such as an "ExplorationTenement" (UnitDefinition), which may be hierarchical and/or have spatial relationships with other units, have various versions (to enable tracking the unit 'life-cycle') that in turn may be represented by different geometries. I think this would capture the changing conditions of tenements, as I know that in Victoria ELs may change name, geometry, operator/lease and governing legislation over time.

The approach taken in this project is to develop the general conceptual model (based initially on the INSPIRE Administrative Boundary model), and then develop a "Product Model" that subsets the Conceptual model for a specific purpose. I suggest that the Australian/NZ GGIC should look at the FSDF model to see if it contains the required information (if not then this may be a problem with the FSDF model), and whether the ANZ GGIC proposal can be described as a FSDF Product Model.

Dear GeoSciMLers,

Although mineral tenements are not included in the GeoSciML schema, some of you may be interested in some work done in Australia and New Zealand towards a simple application schema for delivering mineral tenement areas (eg, exploration licence areas, mining leases, etc).  A first version xsd schema and documentation can be found here: http://schemas.geoscience.gov.au/MineralTenementML/1.0/
