Abstract

- Although exploration is languishing at a 20 year low, the outlook is the best for five years. - Metal prices are forecast to improve over the next several years. - Australia remains highly prospective and discoveries continue to be made both in proven and greenfields provinces. - Exploration in the past 10 years has added significant resources - notably gold, nickel, mineral sands, tantalum - at low cost. - Major potential exists undercover. - As a result of Government programs over the past decade, a wealth of geoscience data is available either free or at very low cost. These are playing an important role in opening up the under explored frontier provinces to exploration.
