To provide statistical information about the Queensland mining industry, particularly mineral and coal production. This information is used by various government departments, industry and is published in various reports.


Mineral production statistics are collected on a quarterly basis from a selection of the largest mineral producers in Queensland, with the exception of fuel minerals producers. Forms are mailed to the selected mineral producers and returned by mail. Approximately 35 mineral producers complete this return.

On a yearly basis mineral production statistics are collected from all (approximately 1,600) mineral producers in Queensland. Forms are mailed to all mineral producers in Queensland and returned by either mail or facsimile.
