A new and improved mapping application, GeoResGlobe, is now available, replacing MinesOnlineMaps.
GeoResGlobe provides an online, interactive experience to view Queensland’s mining and exploration data to assist in the administration of permits and assessment of mineral potential in Queensland.
Access is free and you don't need to register.
Please note: GeoResGlobe works best on late-model desktops or tablets with a screen resolution larger than 650 pixels, using modern browsers such as Chrome, Edge or Safari. You do not need any additional software.
For information about other ways to access mines spatial data, see our guide to mining and resources maps and spatial data.
