A new online publication compiled by Geoscience Australia will provide a wide cross section of the Australian and international community with an overview of results from Australia’s mineral exploration during 2011.

Titled the Australian Mineral Exploration Review for 2011 the report highlights exploration expenditure and results from selected drill intersections announced by individual exploration and mining companies during 2010/11.

It also contains drill hole results for specific commodities, graphs of exploration expenditure trends for specific commodities and reference maps and exploration results for each deposit.

The publication also presents summaries of Federal, State and Northern Territory government initiatives which assist the mineral exploration sector.

Further details are available in the Minister for Resources and Energy, the Hon. Martin Ferguson, AM MP media release. The Australian Mineral Exploration Review for 2011 is available as a free download.
