Geophysics and Drilling Collaborations
Call for applications to round 10 (2017-2018)
Submission of applications for Round 10 (2017-18) funding is now open.
The Geophysics and Drilling Collaborations Program forms part of the Creating Opportunities for Resource Exploration (CORE) initiative and aims to increase the intensity of exploration drilling and geophysical data in greenfields areas of the Northern Territory.
The program provides co-funding assistance of 50% of the program cost up to $100 000 inclusive of GST to successful applicants for selected exploration drilling and geophysical acquisition projects in areas where there is a paucity of geological information.
Projects that seek to use innovative exploration tools or to obtain geological information at depth are encouraged to apply. Applications that use integrated or new technologies that test a clear, targeted geological problem may be considered for smaller prospect-scale programs.
Information gained from collaborative projects will be released to the public six months after the completion of field work to encourage further exploration.
Applicants are encouraged to read the program’s guidelines in preparation for submission. Applications for funding will be received from 13 February 2017 and the submission of applications must be received by 10am CST 26 April 2017.
