Prospecting Licence

Form 1

£1 Prospecting Licence

In 1903, a new Mines and Minerals Ordinance was introduced. The 1/- Prospecting Licence, and the £5 Extra Prospecting Licence  were replace by a single £1 Prospecting Licence. These were issued under the following conditions:

Any person of full age, and every duly appointed agent of any syndicate or company carrying on business in Southern Rhodesia, may, when duly authorised by the Administrator, take out at the office of a Mining Commissioner a prospecting licence or licences. Each such licence shall bear a stamp of the value of one pound sterling.
