New Frontiers

NSW Government is committed to market NSW mineral exploration opportunities nationally and internationally. The New Frontiers Initiative was launched in 2006 to stimulate mineral and petroleum investment in frontier areas that are under-explored.

The introduction of mineral and petroleum title rental fees in July 2012 has continued the funding of the New Frontiers exploration projects. It is helping deliver the NSW 2021 target of boosting primary industries and mining production.

Projects under the initiative cover pre-competitive geophysical surveys, frontier geoscientific mapping and interpretation, key mineral systems studies, development of data management and implementation of web-based delivery systems.
