Over the last three years the SIORMINP database was used to produce 8 1:200000 sheets of Mineral Deposits of Portugal and the sheet of the whole Northern Region.
The Map of Mineral Deposits of Portugal at the scales of 1: 200000 and 1: 500000 consisted of, in a first phase, the preparation and publication of the Map of Mineral Deposits of Portugal (North) at a scale of 1: 200000, together with the list of mineral deposits and their attributes and the respective Explanatory Note in April 2014. After an inventory and detailed classification of all 2443 mineral deposits in the country, in 2017, an almost final version of Sheet 3 of the Map of Mineral Deposits of Portugal was produced at a scale of 1: 200000. Mapping, consisting of all 8 sheets, was completed in 2020.
These 1: 200000 maps will serve as the basis for the production and publication of the Map of Mineral Deposits of Portugal at a scale of 1: 500000, the final objective of this project.
