Learn, explore, invest, connect – in Queensland.

The Queensland Resources and Exploration Gateway (QUREX) helps businesses discover the advantages of investing in Queensland’s thriving resources exploration industry and provides them with opportunities for their future growth and prosperity.

The QUREX Gateway provides a ‘one-stop-shop’ bringing together all the information you need to drive your investment in Queensland resources exploration.

QUREX’s vision is to be a catalyst for development and growth in the Queensland resources sector by attracting and facilitating business investment in the resources exploration industry.

QUREX plays an important role in connecting investors with the resources sector, government, industry associations, and business partners by providing information, tools, resources and support.

The QUREX Gateway was established in 2017 by the Queensland Exploration Council (QEC), supported by the Queensland Government’s Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy (DNRME) and Trade & Investment Queensland (TIQ).

QEC is a not-for-profit initiative of the Queensland Resources Council (QRC), the peak representative body for the state’s minerals and energy developers. QEC launched in 2010 and is recognised as the go-to member organisation in Queensland for bringing exploration and opportunity together.

Industry Feedback

In 2019, QUREX creators the Queensland Exploration Council (QEC), formed a new working group with the aim of enabling small to mid-scale explorers to more easily share their feedback, concerns and best practice suggestions.

The Industry Feedback form is one result of that initiative – a feedback mechanism on the QUREX Gateway for government policymakers and regulators.

To submit your feedback about the opportunities or concerns you are currently facing as a Queensland exploration company, services company or investor, complete the form and hit the submit button to send.
