  • This map shows the locations and status, as at 30 June 2020, of Australian operating mines, mines under development, mines on care and maintenance and resource deposits associated with critical minerals. Developing mines are deposits where the project has a positive feasibility study, development has commenced or all approvals have been received. Mines under care and maintenance and resource deposits are based on known resource estimations and may produce critical minerals in the future. The critical mineral deposits on this map may not be comprehensive for all commodities. For the purposes of this map, critical minerals are defined as minerals and elements (solid and gaseous) that are vital for modern technology and whose supply may be at risk of disruption. The Australian critical minerals list comprises antimony, beryllium, bismuth, chromium, cobalt, gallium, germanium, graphite, hafnium, helium, indium, lithium, magnesium, niobium, platinum group elements, rare earth elements, rhenium, scandium, tantalum, titanium, tungsten, vanadium and zirconium. These commodities are coloured by mineral groupings on the map.

  • This map shows the locations and status, as at 31 December 2022, of Australian operating mines, mines under development, mines on care and maintenance and resource deposits associated with critical minerals. Developing mines are deposits where the project has a positive feasibility study, development has commenced or all approvals have been received. Mines under care and maintenance and resource deposits are based on known resource estimations and may produce critical minerals in the future. The critical mineral deposits on this map may not be comprehensive for all commodities. For the purposes of this map, critical minerals are defined as minerals and elements (solid and gaseous) that are vital for modern technology and whose supply may be at risk of disruption. The Australian critical minerals list comprises aluminium (high-purity alumina), antimony, beryllium, bismuth, chromium, cobalt, gallium, germanium, graphite, hafnium, helium, indium, lithium, magnesium, niobium, platinum group elements, rare earth elements, rhenium, scandium, silicon (high-purity silica), tantalum, titanium, tungsten, vanadium and zirconium. These commodities are coloured by mineral groupings on the map.

  • Australia boasts 10,000 caves! Caves are a great way to introduce common scientific and geographic concepts to your students. This full colour large poster map 78 x 108 cm shows the location of all show caves, and many other caves, in Australia. The poster includes 24 informative images covering many aspects of Australian caves. Suitable for primary level Years 4-6 and secondary level Years 7-9.

  • This map shows the locations and status of Australian operating mines, mines under development, mines on care and maintenance and mineral deposits associated with a critical mineral resource in 2023. Operating mines include projects that have reported a critical mineral resource, but do not necessarily produce critical minerals. Developing mines are deposits where the project has a positive feasibility study, development has commenced or all approvals have been received. Mines under care and maintenance and mineral deposits are those projects with a known critical mineral resource estimate that may produce critical minerals in the future. For the purposes of this map, critical minerals are defined as minerals and elements that are vital for modern technology and whose supply may be at risk of disruption. As at December 2023, the Australian critical minerals list comprised antimony, arsenic, beryllium, bismuth, chromium, cobalt, fluorine, gallium, germanium, graphite, hafnium, high purity alumina, indium, lithium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, niobium, platinum group elements, rare earth elements, rhenium, selenium, silicon (high purity silica/quartz), scandium, tantalum, tellurium, titanium, tungsten, vanadium and zirconium. In February 2024, the Australian Government updated the Australian critical minerals list to include nickel. The fifth edition of this map includes the location and status of Australian nickel mines and deposits in 2023. These commodities are coloured by mineral groupings on the map.
