This study, conducted by the Sustainable Minerals Institute - SMI - as part of the Queensland Government New Economy Minerals Initiative - NEMI - outlines the methodology and results of a targeting exercise in Queensland for three key mineral deposit types that are globally significant hosts for scandium mineralisation. Scandium is a high value critical metal that currently has restricted global production, but with demand forecast to increase with new high technology applications. The study outlines 36 discrete areas across Queensland considered as having high prospectivity for discovery of new scandium resources, with accompanying rationale and data provided in both this hardcopy report and in digital format.
