Northern Territory Resources Council CEO Scott Perkins says one of the big issues is the infrastructure necessary to support very remote operations, along with the interface between transport systems.
“During the conference you’ll hear discussion about the port, road-rail infrastructure and the interconnections.”
Mr Perkins says he’s pleased to see Dr Ian Scrimgeour, the Director of the NT Geological Survey head up the program.
“After more than 100 years of exploration, we have a fair idea of the true potential of NT mineral resources,” he says.
“But we are going to find out a lot more, with Dr Scrimgeour driving a program of geophysical surveys.”
Dr Scrimgeour’s address will be on ‘Unlocking the greenfields exploration potential of the Territory’.
“There’s enough in the program for everyone to get what they want out of it,” says Mr Perkins.
“It’s an opportunity for people to assess for themselves the very great opportunities that are available here, the great resources that back up those opportunities in the form of local companies and local people, and we hope they can see a way of investing in our great Territory.”
