North West Mineral Province Deposit Atlas

As part of the Strategic Resources Exploration Program, the W.H. Bryan Mining & Geology Research Centre (BRC) compiled an atlas of the major deposits in the Northwest Mineral Province. This atlas serves as a resource for explorers to help recognise the signatures and haloes of major deposits in the region, and to provide material which is complementary to the core collections being assembled in the Mount Isa Core Library.

This Atlas details 28 mineral deposits in 20 chapters (plus an introductory chapter). The deposits span a range of commodities including copper, zinc, lead, silver, gold, uranium, rhenium, molybdenum, cobalt, and phosphate. A set of deposit atlases for North East Queensland Mineral Province was created as part of the New Economy Minerals Initiative and can be found here

Each Deposit Atlas contains a pdf document describing the deposit system, discovery history, geophysical and geochemical signatures and alteration of the system as well as a 3D Atlas datasets of all publicly available data. The 3D Atlases were compiled in Geoscience Analyst, a free 3D visualisation and communication software for integrated, multi-disciplinary earth models and data. Download it here.
