How does Mining Atlas work?

Mining Atlas has an extensive database of mines, projects and companies that it provides access to through its online portal. Access to basic locations and information is free while access to data and certain functions requires credits.

The map is provided by Google through its Google Maps API, upon which Mining Atlas adds mining related locations. The availability and accuracy of the map and images are not guaranteed and are dependent on Google for updates.

What do I get if I register for free?

Registration gives you basic access to Mining Atlas and 20 free credits (worth £ 18). For users who will only need a small amount of data, this will suffice.

For users who are actively using data, more credits can be purchased as needed or one could opt to purchase an annual subscription.

What do credits give me?

One credit allows either:

  • the viewing of 1 data set online
  • the downloading of 1 data set to excel or PDF

1 data set is all the available data for a single operation, project or company. The available data will of course vary from project to project, operation to operation.

How do I get more credits?

Credits can be purchased once off or as a monthly allocation when purchasing a subscription.

Please login to Mining Atlas, go to your dashboard and select your credit or subscription option from there. Payment can be made online or via EFT

PLEASE NOTE: We do not provide GPS coordinates for operations and projects, except by special request. Please use the contact form below for your request.

How accurate is the data?

Our research team is constantly updating our database. We utilize company websites, conference presentations, technical reports and news sources to provide data where it is available. The frequency with which we update items depends on their category, for example, projects in feasibility phase are updated more often than those still in early exploration.

Our main advantage versus competitors is our accurate location information. This enables us to use satellite images to confirm the data as well as avoid duplication, since it is not possible to have two mines or projects at exactly the same location.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not guarantee the accuracy of our data nor provide any confirmation that it is fit for purpose. Please see our Terms of Use statement for details.

How often are the satellite images updated?

The satellite images are provided by Google through the Google Maps API. The service provides images based on availability, which is in general an ad-hoc process.

Certain regions may have their satellite images updated as often as every 3 to 6 months, some every 2 years and some never. The result is that the accuracy of satellite images will vary from region to region.
