Alice Springs Convention Centre


The Territory’s premier exploration event


The Territory continues to offer outstanding opportunities for both minerals and petroleum explorers. Major investment in new geoscience data by the Northern Territory Geological Survey (NTGS) and its partners under the Creating Opportunities for Resource Exploration (CORE) initiative is providing exciting insights into the untapped potential of under-explored areas in the Territory.

Join us in Alice Springs on 28–29th March 2017 for the 18th Annual Geoscience Exploration Seminar (AGES), where a mix of NTGS and industry presentations will showcase the rich minerals and petroleum potential of the Northern Territory. AGES is a technical conference that presents a unique opportunity to access the latest in fresh exploration ideas and geoscientific data from the Territory and to network with colleagues who share an interest in the discovery and development of the Territory’s minerals
and oil and gas resources. Nearly 200 people attended the event in 2016.


Seminar highlights


  • the latest on the emergence of a new pegmatite-hosted lithium field in the Bynoe area
  • technical updates on successful exploration programs and new discoveries from across the Territory for gold, zinc, lithium, oil and gas and more
  • release of new data and information on the geology and potential of eastern Arnhem Land
  • dedicated session on the McArthur Basin including the release of new geoscience datasets and mineral system studies
  • information on major new collaborative geoscience programs between NTGS and Geoscience Australia under the Exploring for the Future initiative
  • practical information to assist with issues such as land access, titles and accessing geoscience data
  • the AGES dinner – the premier networking and social event for the NT exploration industry


AGES also incorporates the Mining Services Expo – a showcase of Northern Territory businesses and their capabilities to support exploration and mining ventures.
