Geoscience projects and initiatives
The Northern Territory Geological Survey (NTGS) undertakes geoscience targeted towards a better understanding of the Territory’s geological framework and prospectivity. Our client-focussed team also manages and delivers pre-competitive geoscientific data, industry reports and actively promotes the exploration potential of the Territory.
The NTGS is implementing a range of geoscience programs under the Northern Territory Government’s Resourcing the Territory (2018-2022) initiative to highlight the mineral and petroleum potential of the Territory, and reduce exploration risk for industry.
For further information on services provided by NTGS including online systems and databases and industry reporting requirements is available from the Northern Territory Government website.
