Case study: Collaborative Exploration Initiative

Resources North West Queensland

The Collaborative Exploration Initiative (CEI) supports innovative mineral exploration by providing grants to companies undertaking higher-risk exploration activities, or activities in previously under-explored areas of North West Queensland and elsewhere. Extension of the popular initiative is a practical way of facilitating new exploration activity, offering the potential for new discoveries and identification of future mineral provinces.

This could identify new reserves of new economy minerals which are expected to be a fundamental resource needed as the global economy transitions, particularly for the manufacture of renewable energy components and batteries.
