Definitions

Division 2 - Subdivision 650000 - Energy Resources

This subdivision covers R&D directed towards the exploration, mining, extraction, preparation and supply of energy mineral resources.

It includes R&D directed towards 'clean production' to minimise emissions to the environment from the exploration, mining, extraction, preparation and supply of energy mineral resources or towards protection of the production site. This subdivision has five groups:

    650100 - Exploration
    650200 - Mining and Extraction
    650300 - Preparation and Supply of Energy Source Minerals
    650400 - Prevention and Treatment of Pollution
    659900 - Other

    Exclusions:


      R&D directed towards:

      (a) exploration, mining, extraction and processing of mineral resources other than used in the production and supply of energy is included in Subdivision 640000 Mineral Resources (Excl. Energy); and

      (b) manufacture of processed products from energy resource minerals is included in Subdivision 670000 Manufacturing.

      Group 650100 - Exploration

      This group covers R&D directed towards exploration for uranium, coal, oil and gas, oil shale and tar sands and other energy minerals used for the energy resource industry. This group has five classes:


        650101 - Uranium
        650102 - Coal
        650103 - Oil and gas
        650104 - Oil shale and tar sands
        650199 - Other

        Exclusions:


          R&D directed towards:

          (a) exploration for non-energy mineral resources is included in Group 640100 Exploration; and

          (b) 'clean production' to minimise emissions to the environment from the exploration for energy mineral resources or towards protection of the exploration site is included in Group 650400 Prevention and Treatment of Pollution.
      Group 650200 - Mining and Extraction

      This group covers R&D directed towards mining and extracting uranium, coal, oil and gas, oil shale and tar sands and other energy resource minerals. This group has five classes:


        650201 - Uranium
        650202 - Coal
        650203 - Oil and gas
        650204 - Oil shale and tar sands
        650299 - Other

        Exclusions:


          R&D directed towards:

          (a) mining and extracting non-energy mineral resources is included in Group 640200 Primary Mining and Extraction Processes; and

          (b) 'clean production' to minimise emissions to the environment from the mining and extraction of energy mineral resources or towards protection of the production site is included in Group 650400 Prevention and Treatment of Pollution.
      Group 650300 - Preparation and Supply of Energy Source Minerals

      This group covers R&D directed towards the preparation and supply of uranium, coal, oil and gas, oil shale and tar sands and other energy source mineral resources. This group has five classes:


        650301 - Uranium
        650302 - Coal
        650303 - Oil and gas
        650304 - Oil shale and tar sands
        650399 - Energy minerals not elsewhere classified

        Exclusions:


          R&D directed towards:

          (a) processing non-energy mineral resources is included in Group 640300 First Stage Treatment of Ores and Minerals; and

          (b) 'clean production' to minimise emissions to the environment from the processing of energy mineral resources or towards protection of the production site is included in Group 650400 Prevention and Treatment of Pollution.
      Group 650400 - Prevention and Treatment of Pollution

      This group covers R&D directed towards 'clean production' to minimise emissions to the environment from the exploration, mining, extraction, preparation and supply of energy mineral resources or towards protection of the production site. This group has three classes:


        650401 - Exploration
        650402 - Mining and extraction
        650403 - Preparation and supply of energy source minerals
      Group 659900 - Other

      This group covers R&D directed towards energy resources not elsewhere classified. It has the one Class:


        659999 - Other (e.g. safety)
