Launched in 2010 as a not-for-profit initiative of the Queensland Resources Council, the Queensland Exploration Council focuses on investment attraction initiatives that showcase Queensland as a leading investment destination.
The Queensland Exploration Council’s membership comprises the who’s who of the resources sector, together with members drawn from finance, events and marketing, research and government. The Queensland Exploration Council endeavours to influence perceptions about the importance of exploration, and promote Queensland’s prospectivity to investors and businesses that support the exploration sector.
Queensland Exploration Council membership gives access to initiatives in exploration investment attraction, the monthly newsletter, sponsorship opportunities as well a platform to set, implement and participate in the QEC’s agenda to bring investment to Queensland.
The Queensland Exploration Council is led by a diverse and highly skilled leadership team including former Queensland Government Chief Geologist, Queensland Exploration Council Chairman Brad John.

Complementing the policy work of the Queensland Resources Council, the QEC is seeking to promote the natural advantages of Queensland and Brisbane as a home to minerals and energy companies and the wide range of essential service companies.
The QEC would not be possible without our sponsors. They are vital to fulfilling our ambitious agenda and we thank them for their ongoing support.
The Australian Energy and Battery Minerals Conference in Brisbane from 14-15 March 2018, will bring together up to 40 ASX listed companies to showcase their investment credentials to a large audience of investors and advisors. It was developed as a consequence of rising market interest in energy providers and beneficiaries of the development of electric vehicles.
