Projects and exploration

Australia remains one of the world’s largest untapped minerals markets with 80% of the continent yet to be explored. World-class mineral deposits have been discovered in regions such as the Pilbara and Eastern Goldfields in Western Australia, the Gawler Craton in South Australia and the Bowen Basin in Queensland. Now, new federal, state and territory government exploration initiatives are leading to new discoveries in both brown and greenfields areas.

This page includes a range of pre-competitive exploration data, geological maps, mineral development strategies and information on current mineral projects, including projects that are seeking investment.
