Geological Survey of NSW [1874 -present] : [529] Collection home page

he Geological Survey of New South Wales (GSNSW) is believed to have commenced on 16 July 1874 with the appointment of C.S. Wilkinson as Geological Surveyor initially within the Department of Lands. From 1 July 2019 the Department of Industry was abolished and GSNSW was transferred to the new Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. GSNSW was further transferred to Regional NSW on 2 April 2020. Within Regional NSW, the GSNSW was apart of the Mining, Exploration and Geoscience (MEG) group. In 2023, the GSNSW was undertaking a wide range of projects covering geological mapping, mineral systems studies, geophysical surveys and interpretations, basin studies, energy resource assessments, geochronology, palaeostratigraphy, database development and 3D mapping. Geophysical surveys collected included open file geophysical survey data from exploration companies. Surveys conducted included airborne magnetic and radioelement surveys, airborne electromagnetic (AEM) surveys, gravity surveys, Magnetotelluric (MT) surveys and Seismic surveys. All surveys are archived for public access following title relinquishment. © State of New South Wales through Museums of History NSW
