Exploring for the Future

As part of a wider Government Australian initiative to boost exploration for and management of mineral, energy, and groundwater resources in northern Australia, Geoscience Australia (GA) is leading the Exploring for the Future program in collaboration with State and Territory partners such as the NT Geological Survey.

Through 2018 until 2020 several geoscience research projects will be working across northern Australia including:

  • Airborne electromagnetic surveys
  • Bore water testing
  • Borehole logging and hydraulic testing
  • Soil geochemistry
  • Magnetotelluric surveys
  • Deep seismic surveys
  • Stratigraphic drilling

The information collected from these surveys will be publicly available via the GA website Further information about Exploring for the Future can be found at www.ga.gov.au/eftf and enquiries can be made to eftf@ga.gov.au or 1800 870 833 (Mon-Fri, 9am to 5pm AEST).
