Data Quality

Lineage: Exploration Licences and Minerals Titles are based on mathematical intersections of geographical coordinates and/or graticular blocks provided by the applicant during the tenure application process. Exploration Licences and Mining tenements issued prior to 2000 have also been captured from existing paper based maps. Accuracy of data is generally dependent upon the scale of the map the data was initially plotted on, with scales ranging from 1:50K to 1:250K.

Positional Accuracy: Variable, dependent on method of data capture. Generally, titles applied for and granted since 2000 are based on geographic coordinates and are precise.
Exploration Licences and Mining tenement boundaries issued prior to 2000 have been captured from various paper based maps and may be accurate to +-125m.
