The QUREX Gateway is a collaboration between the Queensland Exploration Council and the Queensland Government. It was launched in December 2017 as a helpful one-stop-shop for explorers and investors to find all the key information they need.

QUREX plays an important role in connecting investors with resources sector companies, government departments, industry associations and business partners by providing information, resources and support. In the past, this information has proved difficult to find. So our aim is to make things easier, while also attracting and facilitating business in our resources rich state and bringing investment to the Queensland resources exploration industry.

Through this news page you will find recent updates from key contributors including the Queensland Exploration Council, Queensland Resources Council and the Queensland Government through the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy and Trade and Investment. You will also find latest news from key players within industry including groundbreaking company announcements and new incentives for explorers.
