The present paper intends to describe the survey that happened during 3th Tocantins Expedition, that held from 22nd until 30th July, 2006. Ten speleologist participated and represented four speleological groups:
Babilônicos Espeleo Clube (BEC), Grupo Espeleológico Anjos Subterrâneos (GREASB), Grupo
Espeleológico de Campinas (GESCAMP), Grupo de Estudos Ambientais da Serra do Mar (GESMAR) and two local monitors. The activities had been concentrated in the cities of Dianópolis and Novo Jardim, and had been a preliminary survey in Aurora do Tocantins City, that are located in the south-east region of the state. The recognition was carried through of new areas with speleological potential, aiming at identification, mapping and registry of the caves, mainly the ones that run risk of flooding in virtue of the construction of hydroelectric plants or that they are in mining area. In this expedition the survey of twenty caves were realized (eighteen new cavities), of which, and three caves were topographed. The region showed great speleological and ecotouristical potential, demanding new expeditions. It was still realized a work to spread the speleological issues and environmental education through the technical lectures in Dianópolis
