The Exploration & Tenures Forum will be held in Sydney on Monday 3 May.
The Exploration & Tenures Forum brings together the NSW exploration sector and supporting professionals to discuss regulatory and policy issues for exploration, case studies of successful exploration, stakeholder engagement, and the path from exploration to mining.
This event and all NSW Minerals Council events will be held in accordance with all relevant NSW Government COVID-19 rules and restrictions to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved.
For any questions regarding events, technical support or sponsorship queries, please contact our events team by email or on 02 9274 1417.
This year, we will be presenting the NSW Mining - Explorer of the Year Award. This prestigious award recognises excellence and outstanding performance of an exploration or mining company, business or project to further exploration in NSW.
NSW is home to some of the world’s leading mining operations, which would not be possible without our world-class explorers. Through the NSW Mining ‘Explorer of the Year’ Award, we want to celebrate the good work of the professionals shaping our industry and unearthing the mineral deposits that will become the mines of tomorrow.

Past winners include Peak Gold Mines’ Great Cobar Project. Peak Gold Mines ‘Great Cobar’ is a gold and copper underground mining operation located in Cobar NSW. It was the original copper deposit discovery in Cobar and was mined from 1871 - 1919. Peak Gold’s discovery of the new Great Cobar gold and copper deposits in 2016 won them the 2017 ‘Explorer of the Year’ title, 145 years after the initial discovery and more than 50 years since the area was last mined. Deep holes, limited drill locations and cleavage challenges resulted in difficult drilling conditions at Great Cobar, which Peak Gold was able to overcome to gain exploration success with a relatively small budget.
