Purpose

To provide quantitative information on Australia's resources of major minerals and fuels.

Description

Estimates of Australia's identified resources are reported for all major and several minor mineral commodities. The resources are classified according to the Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO) classification system for identified mineral resources. The estimates and commodity commentaries are prepared by AGSO's Mineral Resources, and Energy and Petroleum Resources Branches. Graphs show long-term trends in economic demonstrated resources for selected major commodities.

Method of collection

The series is derived from analyses of available published and unpublished resource data acquired from mining and mineral exploration companies and other sources.
