About the Geological Survey of Queensland (GSQ)
The Geological Survey of Queensland (GSQ), as part of the Department of Natural Resources and Mines, provides geoscience and resource information to improve the understanding of the geology and minerals and energy resource potential of Queensland, and promotes the geoscientific data and exploration potential to attract investment.
- The GSQ provides comprehensive information through publications and maps, digital data, data sets and compilations, and access to core and rock collections.
- Much of these can be accessed over the internet through the Interactive Resource and Tenure Maps (IRTM), and the Queensland Digital Exploration Reports system (QDEX).
- GSQ projects currently include activities under Greenfields 2020.
