Brief abstract or additional comments (maximum 100 words)

DMP’s Major Resource Projects Map provides a complete coverage of all major mineral and petroleum projects in Western Australia, onshore and offshore, together with their operating status – ‘in production’ or ‘proposed’.

The map is produced annually while the project data is updated weekly and is made available online. This map provides a quick spatial appreciation of the State’s major resource projects and is a valuable tool that can be used to complement project planning presentations for projects around the state. ‘Major’ is defined as projects with an annual production value of more than $10 million or where the capital cost of development is more than $30 million.
