Please note: The following is 2013 data.
Across Australia there are more than 100,000 rock-art sites, with millions of unique works from the First Nations peoples, created over tens of thousands of years. Mining activities and exploration has and is continuing to threaten significant sites.
Data was collected from each state and territory as well as national mining data. Due to the differing terminology between states there is limitations in what is displayed to similar data sets. Map data was downloaded between February 22 and March 5, 2013, so the map is a snapshot of mines and mining activities for that period. Map Source and Credits
