Interactive Resource and Tenure Maps (IRTM)

IRTM has been replaced by MinesOnlineMaps.

  • IRTM users will be automatically redirected to the new MinesOnlineMaps from Monday 28 July.
  • The 2 systems will operate in parallel until 29 August 2014, when IRTM will be deactivated.
  • Until 29 August 2014, IRTM is only accessible from MinesOnlineMaps (under 'Information and Help').

The Interactive Resource and Tenure Maps (IRTM) system allows you to zoom, pan, search and display geological data with mining and exploration tenure information for the whole of Queensland. A spatial search tool for QDEX (Queensland Digital Exploration Reports system) is also available, allowing you to list company reports for your project area based on historic exploration tenure.

Many of the geological, exploration and mining data layers for Queensland can be downloaded from the IRTM system.

Getting started with IRTM

  • A simple guide on how the internet maps work is available on the 'help' button within the IRTM system.
  • Once you have accessed the internet GIS a row of map tools will display above a map window, map layers will be listed down the left, and a map image will appear in the centre of the screen.
  • You can interact with this map image using the tools (e.g. to zoom in or identify features) and layers to display the spatial information of your choice.

Maps of environmentally sensitive areas

  • When applying to the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP) for environmental authorities for mining activities, you are required under the Environmental Protection Regulation 1998 to identify environmentally sensitive areas within or adjacent to the proposed mining tenement.
