Interactive mineral map

The BGS interactive minerals map, Minerals Information Online, will help you learn about minerals and the environment using our geospatial information. The online maps show the locations of mineral resources, mines and quarries, different environmental designations (including national parks, nature reserves and sites of special scientific interest) and other mineral-related BGS data. You can use the gazetteer to find your way around using a postcode or a place name. Clicking the buttons in the left-hand tool bar will allow you to explore how minerals relate to different types of land use.
