Centre for Exploration Targeting

CET logo

The Centre for Exploration Targeting (CET), has been established by The University of Western Australia (UWA), Curtin University of Technology (Curtin) and the exploration industry, with key funding support from the Government of Western Australia, through the Centres of Excellence in Science and Innovation Program.

The Centre is aimed squarely at the mineral industry's need to increase the discovery of new mineral deposits. Its six research themes reflect the belief that more effective targeting, coupled with independent action to reduce the risks of value destruction, will deliver outcomes that can significantly improve the risk: reward ratio.


CET Grid Analysis software, developed by the Centre for Exploration Targeting and supported by Barrick Gold, is licensed and distributed by Geosoft as an Oasis montaj plus™ third party extension. CET Grid Analysis, designed for mineral exploration geophysicists and geologists looking for discontinuities within magnetic and gravity data, consists of a number of tools that provide automated lineament detection of gridded data, which can be used for first-pass data processing.
