Abstract

This map shows operating mines, developing mines and selected mineral deposits in Australia. Operating mines are mines that were operating at the end of 2011. Developing mines are deposits with a proven minable resource and where mine site development has commenced or where a decision to mine has been announced. Mineral deposits highlight selected areas of known mineralisation of interest. The map illustrates broadly the geographic distribution of the mines and deposits, and the range of selected broadly grouped commodities. This information is superimposed on a generalised (colour) surface geology map of Australia overlain by aeromagnetics (greyscale, 0.5 vertical derivative). Closed mines or mine not currently operating are not shown.
