...and get the exploration edge

The Centre for Exploration Targeting (CET) works to bridge the gap between academic research output and the needs of the mineral exploration industry. We undertake pure and applied research and deliver innovative outcomes to advance understanding of mineral systems and exploration targeting, including the development of practical integrated targeting tools and techniques to improve the risk-to-reward ratio in mineral exploration.

Our vision at the CET is to be recognised as the global leader in research excellence, innovation, and education in geoscience applied to mineral exploration.

CET Membership

The CET is built on a foundation of active and direct engagement with the exploration and mining industries, with Corporate and Individual Membership representing a gateway for interested organisations and individuals into our dynamic portfolio of research activities and knowledge.
