The Australian government has partnered with the US and Canada to develop a new critical minerals dataset.

The Critical Minerals Mapping Initiative online portal contains the world’s largest dataset of critical minerals in and around ore deposits, with more than 7 000 mineral samples from over 60 countries.

It shows the occurrence of critical minerals such as cobalt, lithium and rare earth elements predominantly across Australia, the US and Canada, and can help identify new critical mineral provinces.
