Benefits of investing in Queensland mining and resources
Queensland’s resource potential
Queensland is a highly prospective exploration and operational destination, endowed with diverse reserves of coal, minerals, and petroleum and coal seam gas. Queensland has a number of high-potential mineral and energy resources that are yet to be fully explored or reach production, such as rare earths and strategic metals. The Queensland Government continues to fund on-going geophysical surveys in greenfield areas to enhance exploration opportunities and position Queensland as a preferred region for mining globally.
