Description: A Block Identification Map (BIM) describes the primary 5 degree blocks for tenure management purposes. Each BIM contains 3456 Blocks and each Block contains 25 Sub-Blocks.
There are 17 Block Identification Maps covering Queensland, each at a scale of 1:1,000,000.
Description: The North West Queensland Mineral and Energy Province covers an area of about 50 million hectares. It contains an estimated 75% of Queenslands total metalliferous resources such as copper, silver, lead and zinc. The region also has significant energy resource potential including renewable (geothermal) and non-traditional (tight shale) resources.
Description: Australian law recognises that Indigenous people have rights and interests in the land under their traditional laws and customs. The Native Title Act 1993 (Cwlth) sets out specified processes that must be followed for any 'future act' on land or waters that would affect native title rights and interests. Applications for most resource authorities are considered future acts and are subject to these native title processes.

Description: Applicants applying for exploration or mining permits can use this layer as a guide to whether Native Title may exist over their area of interest. This layer is based on the Digital Cadastral Database (DCDB) displaying parcels where Native Title may exist.
Description: Constrained land has conditions limiting certain exploration or production activities. Applications for exploration or mining permits for mineral, coal and petroleum over constrained land will be accepted, but they will require additional conditions before being granted.
Description: Restricted areas are those areas where exploration activity may occur but with increased restrictions and conditions. These areas are commonly dam catchments or areas needing special consideration before exploration tenure can be granted. Also to protect our resources, allow for future urban development or protect infrastructure such as dams and water facilities.
Description: Areas where landholders have given general permission for fossicking and camping on specific areas of their properties. Fossickers do not require the landholder’s permission to fossick in these areas but must abide by any conditions of access and may be required to pay a fee.
