Is it just getting a license to start the process or do I need to identify the plot or area?

You have to also identify the area you wish to mine.

The licence then applies to that area

Are there people that can help me go through the whole process? An adviser or agent ?

I would suggest you speak to a Solicitor in WA that practices in the area of mining law.

The law society of WA can assist you with that.

Their website is as follows

Any idea on advisory costs range ?

They would charge you their hourly rate. I would be budgeting for an amount between $400 and $600 per hour depending on the years of experience of who you speak to.
