Minerals & Petroleum Project Maps
Advanced Mineral Projects & Exploration Highlights in NSW
Recent exploration results, in the form of drilling intercepts and resource figures, are presented along with resource figures for operating mines onthis map of Mineral Projects in NSW.The information is sourced from selected exploration results and resource calculations published in company reports available to the public. The information on this map is current for January 2013.

Petroleum Projects & Exploration Highlights in NSW
Known and potential resource figures are presented for current projects and prospects for both conventional petroleum (oil and gas) and coal seam methane (CSM).The information is sourced from open file exploration results, resource calculations as published figures in company reports already available to the public and from in-house prospectivity analyses and resource audits by the Department. Outlines of all prospective sedimentary basins are also included with overlays of the current titles, production leases and prospecting authorities. The information on this map is current for April 2012.

New NSW mineral resource project maps
The strength and diversity of the minerals industry in New South Wales is highlighted on the new Mineral Resource Projects NSW map released at the Mineral Exploration and Investment Conference in Sydney in August 2009. A new version of the smaller "pocket sized" map for November 2012 is now available at 1:3 000 000 scale.
Both maps show the locations of major mines and advanced exploration projects for metallic and industrial minerals, gemstones, coal and petroleum in NSW. The maps also show current coal allocation areas.
Shown on the maps are the locations of the major coal mines of the Hunter, western and southern coalfields, the major gold and copper projects in the mid-west and heavy mineral sands in the Murray Basin. The major mineral fields at Cobar and Broken Hill are shown along with the opal fields at Lightning Ridge and White Cliffs.
Large industrial mineral deposit sites including limestone, zeolite, silica and gypsum are also shown.
Relevant major infrastructure, such as transmission lines, power stations, mineral processing plants, gas pipelines, ports and railways, are indicated on the maps. The major geological provinces in NSW are displayed as a backdrop to the maps.
The mining and exploration activity information is sourced from selected exploration and production results published in company reports available to the public. The infrastructure information is sourced from other government agencies.
This edition of the maps are available in folded and flat A0 format at 1:1.5 million scale and in A2 format at 1:3 million scale.
