Abstract THE CSIRO GLASS EARTH is a research initiative developed in 1998 to provide enabling technologies to support the Australian minerals exploration industry in overcoming the impediments of cover and depth. It also provides a vision for the exploration research activities conducted within CSIRO. The long-term vision for Glass Earth is to provide explorationists with the capabilities to "make the top kilometre of the Australian continent, and the geological processes operating within it, transparent" in order to aid the discovery of the next generation of ore deposits. The metaphor and vision remain pertinent to the task at hand - sustaining a successful exploration industry generating wealth for Australia.
