History

The State Prospecting Board was created on 1 September 1919 to provide assistance to prospecting parties in Western Australia. It established Advisory Boards in various centres including Meekatharra and Mt Magnet. In 1922 it set up a State Prospecting Party (subsequently SPP #1) and by June 1924 five such parties had been sent out to explore remote areas of Western Australia and report on any mineralisation found.
