Exploration in the Gallery is an annual seminar presented by the Department of Regional NSW’s Mining, Exploration and Geoscience.

This year we’re returning to an in-person event at the Art Gallery of NSW and have extended the program to a full day. The morning session will feature highlights of current projects by the Geological Survey of NSW and their implications for exploration, mining, research and investment. Following a light lunch and poster viewing, the afternoon session will provide an opportunity for invited explorers to present their experiences and insights from an industry perspective.
