Analysis by BDO shows that about 16 per cent of the 753 Australian-listed exploration companies had no active exploration program in the December 2015 quarter. Meanwhile, 25 exploration companies delisted, were placed in administration or opted to exit the sector during the period. Meanwhile, nearly 50 per cent of companies that remain in the sector are estimated to be able to finance operating expenditure for no more than two quarters.
