Natural resources and mines data

We are committed to the Queensland Government's open data initiative.

Our open data strategy details our data assessment processes and identifies data planned for release and the release schedule. Data is available in a variety of standard formats.

Data is also available from our other specialist data sources.

Open data portal

Our data, available from the open data portal, includes over 90 datasets, which cover the range of our activities and responsibilities. You can search for resources in the data portal by theme, topic or department name.


Data is updated at varying frequencies, including:

  • fortnightly (e.g. titles activity)
  • monthly (e.g. coal statistics)
  • annually (e.g. corporate reporting).
