Energy and Resources Minister Bryan Green is confident more new mines will be approved in the state's far North-West following the federal government's limited heritage listing of the Tarkine.
Mr Green said the decision by federal Environment Minister Tony Burke last week will provide greater confidence for potential investors.
"We will continue to promote mineral exploration and mining in Tasmania to the world and I am confident we will see more jobs and wealth creating opportunities for the State," Mr Green said.
He said mining companies are already well aware of the strict guidelines any operations must adhere to.
"Nothing in relation to the environmental checks and balances has changed and the extensive reserves that already exist in the Tarkine region remain intact.
"We are seeing record levels of mineral exploration and record mining royalties flowing to the State from existing operations and it is business as usual.
Mr Green said claims by the Liberals that the government wanted to 'lock up' the Tarkine to mining could not be further from the truth and should finally be put to rest.
"We are working with the mining industry every day and I am confident we can progress new projects that will provide more jobs and opportunities for the region," he said.
Mr Green said he had approved Shree Minerals' new mine near Balfour and VentureMinerals' Riley Creek iron ore mine west of Tullah
"The Riley mine is one of three major projects Venture is developing in the North-West. A mining lease has been granted to company for its Livingstone project also near Tullah and it is finalising its Mt Lindsay tin and tungsten mine," he said.
The Mt Lindsay project is valued at almost $200 million and could create up to 1000 jobs during the construction phase.
