Supporting our Job-Creating Resources Sector: Top Line-Up for Premier Event

Office of Minister Paul Kirby

The program for the Territory’s premier exploration event has been released, and this year’s Annual Geoscience Exploration Seminar (AGES) includes nine companies presenting on their successful exploration programs in the Territory. 

AGES, which takes place in Alice Springs, promotes the growth of our job-creating resources sector by bringing together people from across the industry to share their expert knowledge, network, and learn about the very latest technology and discoveries in the Territory’s resources exploration.

Highlights of the program include:

  • Presentations on new findings and data from the NT Government’s record four-year, $26 million Resourcing the Territory exploration initiative

  • Discussions on data from major collaborative programs between the NT Geological Survey, Geoscience Australia and CSIRO

  • The latest updates on promising new base metal discoveries in the Aileron Province and the developing lithium deposits of the Bynoe field

  • Presentations on the geology and oil and gas potential of the Amadeus Basin

  • New insights into gold mineralisation and exploration success from the NT’s three main gold provinces

  • A pre-conference showcase by Geoscience Australia on new datasets acquired over the Tennant Creek-Mount Isa region as part of the Exploring for the Future program.

AGES also incorporates the Mining Services Expo, which showcases NT businesses and promotes Territory local contractors. The event will take place at the Alice Springs Convention Centre on 19-20 March, 2019. To find out more visit

Quotes from Minister for Primary Industry and Resources, Paul Kirby:

“Our Government knows Territorians want safe, well-paid, local jobs. By supporting a strong and well-regulated resources sector, including through events like AGES, our Government is focused on delivering those jobs for Territorians.

“We have invested record funding into the resources exploration sector – $26 million over four years through our Resourcing the Territory initiative – creating more jobs for Territorians and more work for Territory businesses.

“This year’s AGES will provide the most up-to-date information on the Territory’s resources potential to investors and explorers, demonstrating why the Territory is a great place to invest and do business.

“AGES is also a chance for industry to hear about resources success stories, and the program this year includes presentations on successful findings in a range of commodities, including gold, lithium, cobalt, copper, oil and gas.

“Territory businesses that service the mining sector benefit from AGES too, as the Mining Services Expo runs alongside the main event, allowing them to showcase their capabilities to explorers and miners.”
