After some COVID-interrupted years, Digging Deeper proved to be the perfect way to wrap up 2022!
Across two days, over 150 passionate and like-minded professionals from industry, academia and government gathered to learn from one another (both in-person and online), discuss the latest discoveries and hear about the cutting edge, innovative exploration activities being undertaken in Queensland.
Digging Deeper 2022 comprised a full day of dynamic talks, discussing GSQ’s future work program including ESG, geology, geophysics, critical minerals and mine waste.
The poster sessions were a hive of activity, with the next wave of budding geologists showcasing their latest research.
Closing out the event, was a highly educational, hands-on Mineral Systems Workshop held at the Exploration Data Centre – it was so popular in fact, we’ll soon be taking bookings for the next one.
It was fantastic to see so much collaboration in action, and it’s abundantly clear, there’s a desire for more of these sorts of GSQ events and we cannot wait to do just that in 2023.
Keep an eye out for our mid-year Technical Workshop for Industry in Mount Isa and Digging Deeper again in Brisbane in December.

Alkaline and peralkaline igneous rocks are important components of several mineral systems, including those that yield critical metals such as REEs and other HFSEs. The GSQ are investigating the presence of these rock types and the potential for critical metal enrichment in eastern Queensland throug
Each year the Collaborative Exploration Initiative (CEI) supports innovative new exploration projects that generate public data and further mineral discovery in Queensland.The initiative aims to open new areas up for exploration and encourage the sharing of ideas and resources between explorers.
