Welcome to the P1162A Website
AMIRA International's P1162A Unlocking Australia's hidden mineral potential. Stage 2: Implementing the Roadmap Findings has secured sufficient funding from a combination of the mining and exploration industry, government sector and the research community.
This is an ambitious initiative which offers Australia's mineral exploration industry, government geological survey organisations, and the research community, a strategic opportunity of being directly involved in the design of a longer-term integrated research and accelerated data compilation and acquisition program through an unprecedented national scale collaborative effort. The overall aim is to improve the performance and success rate of mineral exploration in areas of Australia concealed under post mineralisation cover.
This effort builds on Stage 1 of AMIRA International's Roadmap for Exploration Under Cover which delivered a consensus view from key stakeholders of what needs to be done if undiscovered mineral wealth in areas of cover is to be found in Australia. Stage 1 commended in late 2014, and was released in July 2015.
Stage 2 roadmap activities commenced in late May 2016 and are scheduled to be completed in the first quarter 2017.
We look forward to continuing to help position Australia's exploration industry to make new major mineral discoveries and position Australia as the global leader in exploration targeting beneath post mineral cover.
