The Geological Survey of Queensland (GSQ) is the state’s custodian of geoscience knowledge and data.

GSQ collects and provides geoscience data, information and advice about Queensland’s mineral and energy resources and resource potential. GSQ does this through a range of geoscience projects and initiatives, including mandatory industry reporting.

This information assists industry to sustainably access Queensland’s minerals and energy resources.

GSQ also plays a key role in attracting investment to Queensland’s resources sector by:

  • improving global understanding of the state’s prospectivity and resource potential
  • supporting innovative exploration through the provision of grants and the Collaborative Exploration Initiative
  • leading the global transition to a data-driven exploration ecosystem
  • informing resource planning and economically beneficial development policy initiatives.

    GSQ makes mineral and energy geoscience data and information available to industry, government and the public through our publicationsmaps and digital data products.

    The Exploration Data Centre (EDC) at Brisbane and the John Campbell Miles Drill Core Storage Facility at Mount Isa house geoscience data and information dating back to the mid-1800s. The collections include drill core and cuttings from current and past exploration programs, and samples from GSQ mapping fieldwork.
