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).
Thirty grants have been awarded for the first three rounds of EDGI since October 2018. MRT is now seeking proposals from applicants for a fourth round of projects, to be to be jointly funded by the successful applicants and the State Government. The projects will be undertaken during 2020-21 and completed by mid-2021.
