Rock Files

Minerals Downunder | Rock Files | Fact Sheets

A series of web pages provided by the Minerals Council of Australia, which describe the properties, uses and sources of twelve key metals produced by the Australian minerals industry. This basic information is supplemented by "Amazing Facts" about each metal, and by a bibliography of publications and websites for further information. The Rock Files support the Olympic Minerals website and are relevant to Science/SOSE curriculum requirements in the upper primary and secondary years of schooling. Teachers and students can view them on the web (left hand column below), or download them in pdf-format for printing using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
