Rob is an investigator, of sorts, looking for clues that will lead to the discovery of mineral wealth. Exploring bacteria, gases, plants and even termites can provide hints as to the geology under the surface. Bacteria and gases help move metals through the earth, while different plants and termites prefer different foundations; Rob can use these factors to point him in the right direction.

In this talk, Rob will describe the ways that science and innovation are helping to find the resources that can provide a prosperous future for Australia.
