Critical Minerals Portal to identify economic and geological potential

Main content area


11 June 2020

The Critical Minerals Facilitation Office is partnering with Geoscience Australia to develop a web-based Critical Minerals Portal. The Portal will be a tool for users to assess the economic and geological potential of selected critical minerals within Australia.

The Critical Minerals Portal will increase the visibility of Australia’s high quality critical mineral resources to international partners. It will:

  • demonstrate Australia’s significant critical minerals endowments
  • capture existing mines, tailing dams and associated infrastructure
  • be progressively updated by Geoscience Australia using its world-class data sets

This collaboration is another significant step in establishing Australia as a potential investment destination and reliable supplier of critical minerals.
