The Tasmanian State Government, through the Exploration Drilling Grant Initiative (EDGI), is offering grants for co-funded exploration drilling projects. The aim is to provide a stimulus to greenfields exploration in Tasmania. The State Government is funding this initiative with $2 million over four years and the program is administered by Mineral Resources Tasmania (MRT).
The EDGI Program will consider applications from any off-mine-lease location in the state. It will preferentially fund high quality, technically and economically sound greenfields projects that promote innovative exploration or new exploration concepts and technology. Applicants may submit more than one proposal and applications can be made for all mineral categories, as defined in the Mineral Resources Development Act 1995.
