Advanced mineral projects and exploration highlights in NSW

The NSW Geological Survey regularly updates the Advanced Mineral Projects and Exploration Highlights map (3MB PDF). The map outlines recent exploration results released to the ASX, in the form of drilling intercepts and resource figures. These are presented along with resource figures for operating mines on the map. The information is sourced from publicly available exploration results and resource calculations published in company reports.

Future of Minerals in NSW report

The Future of Minerals in NSW Report (21.9MB PDF) released in 2019 aims to inform investors, project developers, miners and explorers of how global consumer trends and technology development will affect the supply and demand for minerals, especially high-tech and critical minerals. The report highlights minerals opportunities in NSW that could fulfill this demand.

The report includes a Directory of NSW mineral mines and development projects (December 2019) (286KB PDF) and online Appendix.
