Academic institutions have long been known to play an important role in the development and refinement of models that have been used by the minerals (and petroleum) exploration industry to discover ore deposits. However, less well known is the role of government in exploration. Data and ideas provided by government agencies have played a key role in the discovery of many ore deposits, including major deposits such as Olympic Dam, Red Dog, and Lihir. This session draws together geoscientists from a range of Federal and State/Provincial government agencies to showcase the diverse approaches of these organizations to promote and assist exploration. The purpose of the session is to expose explorationists and academics to the different types of information available from government agencies and to gain feedback from industry and academia as to which approaches are most effective.
Types of presentation: Invited Talks
