Description

Abstract: These data represent the OZMIN Oracle relational database containing geological and resource information for Australian mineral deposits. OZMIN has been compiled from published references and has been designed so that attribute information can be retrieved and analysed in relation to spatial data contained in geographic information systems. The national mineral deposits dataset contains data on over one thousand major and historically significant mineral deposits for 60 mineral commodities (including coal). Data available via mapping interfaces on the Geoscience Australia website are updated weekly whilst data available via download are a snapshot at the "Ending Date" of the current database entries.
