Abstract Total payments to government by a mineral exploration firm which follows Bayesian procedures when deciding on exploration plans are shown to vary with the rate of resource rent tax in a two part tax scheme which also includes a competitive auction of the right to explore and mine. If the explorer is risk neutral, then a zero tax rate maximises government revenue.
