Inspecting and sampling core and cuttings

You can inspect any open file sample held by the Geological Survey of Queensland. You can also obtain samples for further analysis, subject to terms and conditions.

To request an inspection, contact the manager at the Exploration Data Centre or the John Campbell Miles Drill Core Storage Facility. You will need to make a written request to obtain samples.

Site facilities

We have sampling and slabbing facilities, or you can request that our staff do this for you.

We supply acid, sample bags, tags and geology picks or hammers.

Read the Exploration Data Centre brochure and the John Campbell Miles Drill Core Storage Facility guide for more details.

Note: You must wear covered footwear at all times in our facilities.
