Changes must involve a change in the law on geological works.

BRATISLAVA. The Ministry of the Environment can reject a proposal to designate the exploration area if the deposit of reserved minerals can no longer be used in the future.
And even if the reconnaissance area would be in conflict with the public interest.
These changes are intended to make an amendment to the law on geological works (geological law), which has been submitted to the parliamentary walk by Mosta-Híd Peter Antal, Peter Kresak and Tibor Bastrnák.
After a new one, the ministry can ask for documentation about the possible future use of the deposit or for serious reasons of public interest. And on that basis it would then decide on a proposal to determine the exploration area.
The proposal also describes the task of the ministry, as a governing body that deals with the enforcement of the property right, to deal carefully with the issue of compelling public interest in the procedure.
"The current regulation does not explicitly impose an obligation on the ministry," MEPs explain.
According to them, the amendment would improve the decision-making activity of the ministry and at the same time improve the position of the owner of the property.
