Abstract

The Mount Isa Inlier and Environs Mineral Deposit Database describes 251 of the most significant mineral deposits in the Mount Isa Inlier and environs, out of a total of more than 1800 locations listed in the Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO) mineral occurrence database, 'MINLOC'. The database comprises five commodity-based tables, grouped as follows: copper-gold-silver (187 locations), lead-zinc-silver (22), gold (15), uranium (12) and miscellaneous (including silver, cobalt, tungsten, tin, manganese, iron and beryl; 15 locations). Each of the mineral deposits described either has combined production and reserves equivalent in value to more than 20 tonnes of copper metal, or is a significant prospect typical of a particular deposit type. Mineral deposits described in the database are presented on a 1:500 000 scale metallogenic map of the Mount Isa Inlier and Environs, which is available separately.
