Data acquisition authority

A data acquisition authority (DAA) authorises you to conduct limited geophysical survey activities and collect data outside the area of your exploration permit or lease. A DAA is only granted on land that is contiguous to the granted exploration permit or lease and for activities that are directly relevant to authorised activities of your exploration permit or lease.

A DAA can be granted for a maximum term of 2 years and ends if the exploration permit or lease with which it is associated ends.
