The Annual Geoscience Exploration Seminar (AGES) 2024


The Annual Geoscience Exploration Seminar (AGES) 2024

The Northern Territory (NT) Government’s flagship exploration event, the Annual Geoscience Exploration Seminar (AGES), will be held at the Alice Springs Convention Centre from 16 to 17 April 2024, marking the 25th anniversary of the event. Registrations for the event will open at the end of 2023.

AGES is a technical exploration-focused conference featuring presentations from the NT Geological Survey, its partners and the exploration industry on new geoscience and latest exploration results from across the NT.

The event provides 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 energy resources.

Program highlights

We have an exciting program coming together, with confirmed industry speakers from Astute Metals, GSW Resources, Investigator Resources, Kingsland Minerals, South 32, Newmont, PNX Metals, Prodigy Gold, Teck, Tennant Minerals and Transition Minerals.

The program includes presentations from NTGS, Geoscience Australia, CSIRO, universities and exploration companies on new geoscience data and concepts and exploration highlights from across the Territory. Topics to be covered include new discoveries of regolith-hosted rare earths, innovative targeting for copper-gold in the Barkly, updates on uranium geology in the Pine Creek region, and news of the discovery of the Territory’s first graphite resource.

A highlight of AGES will be two presentations by Newmont on the geology and discovery history of the Oberon gold deposit in the Tanami.

There will also be sessions on the Territory’s Proterozoic basins and associated basin-hosted resources, including a workshop and presentations on a major new GA-NTGS seismic survey to unlock the minerals and energy potential of the Birrindudu Basin.

Cost and Registration

Registrations for the conference and workshops are now OPEN.
