Critical Raw Materials Deposits in Mainland Portugal - CRM2020

Critical Raw Materials Deposits in Mainland Portugal - CRM2020

Year : 2021

The search for new sources of raw materials, in particular, Critical Raw Materials, is conditioned by emergent technologies and economic factors. Raw Materials are considered “critical” when their supply risk and economic impact are considered high relative to others raw materials. The criticality of Critical Raw Materials depend on several geological, political, and technical factors. This “Critical Raw Materials Deposits in Mainland Portugal” map is a compilation of the known occurrences and deposits that contain some of the CRM according to the latest list published in September 2020.

Explora Project

Explora Project

Year : 2019

The EXPLORA project – Definition of new vectors of geological, geophysical and geochemical knowledge for the northern region of Neves-Corvo, funded by the Alentejo2020 program, aims to characterize the geological, geochemical and geophysical models of this important mining center of the Iberian Pyrite Range, up to depths of about 1500 m. EXPLORA intends to define new geological horizons favorable to the occurrence of sulphide mineralizations, based on an integrated ID methodology, which involves: the study of deep surveys (>1000 m); dating of felosic volcanic rocks (U/Pb in zircons) and sediments (biostratigraphic studies, palinology); processing and modeling of gravimetry, geomagnetism, resistivity and seismic data; petrophysical measurements; geochemistry of rocks and soils; study of geochemical halos in soils and software development.

Geologic Map of the Marbles from Viana do Alentejo - Alvito, Portugal

Geologic Map of the Marbles from Viana do Alentejo - Alvito, Portugal

Year : 1999

This geological map highlights the marbles of the region between Viana do Alentejo - Alvito, which corresponds to a fault-controlled anticlinal structure. The marbles surface in an extensive area and have coarse grain and greenish colors, being explored for many years in some quarries of relatively small dimensions.

Geological Map of the Brecha Algarvia Ornamental Limestone

Geological Map of the Brecha Algarvia Ornamental Limestone

Year : 2000

Due to its uniqueness and interest for the extractive industry sector of carbonated ornamental rocks in the Algarve region, the Global Valorization Project of the "Algarvia Gap" was carried out with the objective of deepening the existing knowledge about this resource and, at the same time, to gather information that leads to an efficient planning of this industrial sector.

Maps of Mineral Deposits of Portugal in the range of 1:200 000

Maps of Mineral Deposits of Portugal in the range of 1:200 000

Year : 2021

Over the last few years, the SIORMINP – Portuguese Mineral Resources and Occurrences System has been the basis for the production of the 8 sheets at the scale of 1:200 000 of the Mineral Deposits Charter of Portugal and also the leaf of the Northern Region. Here you can download the 8 sheets that make up the Letter of Mineral Deposits of Portugal on a scale of 1:200 000, complemented by their explanatory notes that include, in addition to an explanatory text on the letter, the lists with all 2443 mineral deposits of the country represented.

Portuguese Offshore Minerals Map

Portuguese Offshore Minerals Map

Year : 2021

The Offshore minerals map of Portugal was produced on a 1:5 000 000 scale, with the fundamental objective of demonstrating the potential of offshore Portuguese for mineral resources. For the construction of the map was considered the Exclusive Economic Zone of Portugal and the Proposal for extension of the Continental Shelf, which, being approved, will join the Zee's of the Azores, Madeira and mainland Portugal, increasing the area of portuguese jurisdiction and sovereignty to about 4 000 000 Km2.
