Geological maps and notes
1:100 000, 1:250 000, 1:500 000, 1:1 000 000 and 1:2 500 000 scale geological maps
Map commentaries and explanatory notes
Geological maps are commonly accompanied by notes that provide information about the maps contents. Notes for the 1:100 000 scale geological map sheet series are entitled 'Queensland, 1:100 000 Geological Map Commentary' and are considered as books. Notes for the 1:250 000 scale geological map sheet series are entitled 'Queensland 1:250 000 Geological Series - Explanatory Notes' and are considered as a series. The availability of notes is incorporated into the maps lists.

Exploration Data Centre
The Exploration Data Centre (EDC) at Zillmere houses collections including drill core and cuttings from both Departmental and company exploration programs, and rock samples from regional mapping fieldwork.
A cost-effective means of capturing detailed mineralogical data along with a high-resolution digital image of the drill core in their original trays, thus digitizing the whole core-logging process.
Regional core facilities
Regional facilities operate at Mount Isa and Mount Morgan.
