Discovery Day is the best way to engage with the Geological Survey of South Australia (GSSA) and our collaborative partners as we deliver new data and insights into the regional geology of South Australia.
The day will summarise some of the big projects the GSSA have been working on over the last year, along with some new research being undertaken with collaborating organisations including MinEx CRC, University of Adelaide, CSIRO and Geoscience Australia.

From 28 November to 2 December 2022 South Australia will host a series of mining and geoscience related events. Register now to create your very own geoscience and mining week.
CSIRO present the Deep Earth Imaging Future Science Platform’s biennial subsurface symposium, Sub22. The event is centred on how best to overcome the shared obstacles encountered on the journey from imaging structures to predicting processes.
Monday 28 November to Wednesday 30 November 2022
