The company states that the 658 hectare Exploration Permit 40-625 expires on September 2013.

The exploration licence was formerly held by a subsidiary of the L&M Group, though the licence remains listed on the L&M group's out of date website. The New Zealand Petroleum and Minerals registry states that the licence was transferred on May 11 2009 though the online register does not explicitly mention L&M.[1]

L&M stated on its website that the licence area has 39.5 million tonnes of sub-Bituminous coal. The company states that the prospect is located in western Southland and is located approximately 77 kilometres northwest of Invercargill.[2]

See "Permit 40625 Report" for a more detailed New Zealand Petroleum and Minerals map of the permit area.
