Mineral Resources Tasmania

Tasmania geoscience data discovery workshop

Mineral Resources Tasmania (MRT) will be running a workshop preceding the Geoscience Forum at the Tullah Lakseside Lodge on Wednesday 1 December from 1pm - 4.30pm.

The workshop will be free, and whilst immediately preceding the GSA/Aus-IMM/AIG geoscience forum, is open to all those who are interested.

The first part of the workshop will consist of a presentation led by MRT database geologist Kyen Knight:

  • An overview of data held by MRT
  • How to access the data, what’s new and what is under development
  • Future directions
  • Q&A

The second part will be a hands-on demonstration accessing and analysing this information in a GIS environment, led by MRT geologist and GIS expert Colin Mazengarb.

Registrants are encouraged to bring their laptops and be led through a series of data exploration exercises in the open-source QGIS environment.

Registering for the workshop is essential. For further information and to register please contact MRT at
