The Mineral Exploration Assessment (MEA) team in the Geological Survey of NSW is responsible for monitoring mineral exploration in the state. Exploration reports are assessed by the MEA team to monitor performance against work program licence conditions, and to ensure results of exploration are reported in full and in a form suitable to be included in the DIGS® system, a valuable and unique library of information maintained by the Division.

Geoscientific reports on assessment leases and mining leases are assessed to ensure results of exploration, assessment and mining are reported similarly for the DIGS® system.

Applications for titles, for renewal of titles and for transfer of titles are also assessed to provide advice to the decision-maker who determines the applications.
