Companies, government organisations and individuals are welcome to join EGRU. Members benefit from networking and collaboration opportunities with our researchers and other EGRU members and enjoy discounted registration fees for EGRU events.

Why join EGRU?

Membership of EGRU provides opportunities for industry professionals to interact with a dynamic team of researchers working on mineralisation projects in world-class terranes.

Member organisations are welcome to network with EGRU staff and students to explore the opportunities for collaborative research and focused training, and to become engaged with geoscience researchers involved in developing new data and concepts directed at discovering and understanding mineral deposits.

For organisations working in northern Queensland, EGRU membership provides an opportunity to interact with researchers working in their backyards. EGRU has active research programs in the north-west Cloncurry – Mount Isa region, and in the north-east Palaeozoic intrusive and volcanic terranes. Research staff and postgraduate students are engaged in research projects aimed at defining the characteristics and settings of base-metal, gold and critical metal mineralisation, unravelling the tectonic and metallogenic history of mineralised terranes, and developing new techniques for exploration and mining.

EGRU also offers workshops and field trips in north-west and north-east Queensland, which focus on the regional geology and mineralisation. Recent workshops and field trips (2015, 2016, 2018, 2021, 2022, 2023), brought together industry geologists, researchers, and students with a keen interest in mineral systems in the region. The technical sessions, core viewing and field visits give delegates the opportunity to discuss the current understanding of mineralisation styles, characteristics, settings, and exploration techniques, and to develop concepts for future research.

EGRU members also benefit from substantially discounted fees for EGRU professional development short courses, workshops, field trips and conferences.

Overviews of several EGRU research projects in Australia and overseas are included in issues of the EGRU newsletter.
