Exploration is the process of searching for unusual concentrations of the earth’s natural resources, including its minerals, rocks for construction materials and coal for use in daily life. Minerals are found at very few locations and accumulations of minerals at sufficient concentrations to be viably mined are extremely rare and difficult to find. Australia’s minerals and coal make a very substantial contribution to the country’s healthy economy and way of life. For more information about exploration click on the topics below.
