Large File Transfer (LaFiX) logo

The Large File Exchange service (LaFiX) enables the online submission of large files up to 11GB via the internet. This includes geophysical survey data required as part of compulsory exploration reporting to the department, as defined in the NSW exploration reporting guidelines.

How LaFiX works

LaFiX employs a secure 3-step process:

  1. User completes an online application for a link to the FTP site where the data files can be uploaded.
  2. Department emails a link to the user for uploading the files.
  3. Department reviews the files and emails the user acknowledging receipt of the files.

No registration is required.
