Abstract: This report provides background data on the relative importance of the junior sector on the future size of the mining industry in New South Wales.

The key findings are that Junior Explorers account for 80% of the discoveries made in the State.

In-spite of the current difficult market conditions, the junior companies are remarkably resilient and, provided they can get access to funds, can survive for 10-20 years or more.
There is an urgent need to find large new deposits now. Without them, there is a real risk that mine production (and revenues and employment) could significantly decline in 10-15 years' time.

Consequently, the future of NSW relies heavily on a strong and vigorous junior sector
