The Queensland mining industry is a leader in the international market, offering world class production of minerals and energy resources. Major mining operations are located throughout the state, with the government also opening up large areas of unexplored land to encourage investment in emerging and existing commodities.


The Queensland Government recognises the pivotal role mining plays in the State’s economy now and into the future. With exploration success critical to the sector’s sustainability, the provision of pre-competitive geoscience data through the Geological Survey of Queensland reduces uncertainty and ensures direct support for exploration activities.


The Queensland resources and infrastructure map is a helpful tool to discover at a glance Queensland’s major resource basins, projects and infrastructure locations.

The Queensland Spatial Catalogue is a Queensland Government initiative to a geospatial portal that allows public access to Queensland Government spatial data and information.

This service is a Queensland Government initiative to provide improved public access to a variety of spatial and associated data. You can discover, display, select and download or order data over an area of interest in selected formats, including map coverage data, image data and text file data.

You can search for downloadable datasets, pre-packaged datasets, live data and maps (web services), spatially related applications, Queensland Globe KML files and services and offline data.

The Queensland Spatial Catalogue lists spatial data holdings for the Department of Natural Resources and Mines, as well as spatial data contributed by many other departments.
