+ -

The Centre for Exploration Targeting (CET) is a unique applied research enterprise focusing on increasing the discovery rate in mineral exploration and the quality of discoveries without relying on substantial increases in exploration expenditure.

The CET endeavours to bridge the gap between current research output and the needs of industry technology created by the recent profound changes in the mining industry worldwide. This gap provides a market opportunity for the CET to successfully undertake applied research and produce innovation outcomes which deliver practical integrated targeting tools and techniques to improve the risk: reward ratio in exploration.


The CET’s objective of effectively engaging with the Minerals Industry and thought leaders globally is achieved by effective linkage with industry and adding value to CET business partners through our various collaborative research, training and information dissemination programs.

This approach ensures the balance between fundamental and applied research outputs by ensuring that the fundamental research is aligned with application in industry.
