Abstract

The Mineral Deposits Map of Papua New Guinea has been compiled jointly by the Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR) and the Geological Survey of Papua New Guinea. Open-file data have been used in the compilation of the map, which is envisaged as an aid to exploration and for official purposes; it is not intended to be a metallogenic map. Metals, mineral fuels, and industrial minerals are plotted but construction and fluxing materials and groundwater are excluded. The commodities in the map and tables are present in, or have been extracted from, each deposit as shown, and the importance of the deposit has been assessed on available information. The notes supplement the map by providing detailed information on each commodity. They are organized into sections which correspond to the commodity groups discussed below, and within each section the data on individual commodities are present in tabular form. Appendix II lists the commodities occurring in each Papua New Guinea 1:250 000 Sheet area. Figure 1 is a reference map of the Sheet areas.
