GERM - The Geological Resource Map of New Zealand
GERM - the GEological Resource Map of New Zealand database is a mineral deposit inventory of mineral, rock aggregate, building stone, coal, oil, gas, thermal water, and cold-water spring occurrences. More than 10,000 sites such as quarries, mines, dredges, wells, outcrops, seeps, springs, or fields are catalogued. Entries contain summary information on location, geology, geochemistry, exploration, production and use. The data were complied between 1986 and 1993. There has been no systematic update of the data since 1993, and therefore the status of some mining and quarrying operations may have changed. Few new operations since 1994 are included in the GERM database.
