Need for the Document
A Mining Lease is issued to a holder of any prospecting right and provides the lessee the right to extract deposits within the land area of the mining lease, including the right to remove and dispose of the minerals as specified in the lease.

A mining lease may be granted for a term of five to twenty-one years, and will set out the applicable terms and conditions for such mining.



Information which might help
The Prospecting Right allows individuals and agents of companies, bodies of persons, and partnerships to prospect on any land as authorized by the Commissioner of Mines and Geology and qualifies them to acquire licenses and peg locations. This is the first step in acquiring all other mining licenses.



Other uses of the Document/Certificate
A Mining Lease bestows mining rights and is granted for the exploitation of a mineral deposit which has been discovered following successful prospecting and exploration under either of the other types of licenses.

Others
All natural resources are vested in the people of Kenya with the government as trustee. Minerals are classified as public land and therefore belong to all the citizens of Kenyan. There is thus a distinction in the ownership of subsurface land and minerals and surface land. The law requires that holders of prospecting and mining titles secure access to the land required for prospecting and mining and offer fair compensation for the same. Specifically, the licensing procedures require consents from local communities, owners and occupiers of land, as well as other governing bodies at the devolved level of government. Licensees are also obligated to offer fair compensations for damages, obstructions, and other inconveniences, to owners and/or occupiers of the land, where applicable.
