Under the EL, companies are given three years upfront to assess the geology, raise financing, attract a farm-in partner or surrender the license before they are required to post large financial requirements. During this period, companies are required to provide the Board with an annual work plan which must be approved in order for the license to remain valid.

The Call for Bids NS08-1 was issued on June 25, 2008. At that time, interested parties were invited to bid on the parcels and the public was invited to submit written comments to the Board. Bidding closed on October 30, 2008. Exploration Licenses will be issued by the Board on January 1, 2009, subject to Ministerial approval and in accordance with the Accord Acts.
