EBook­shop launched

Kalgoorlie Miner - - MINE TALK -

The Depart­ment of Mines and Pe­tro­leum says its new-look ebook­shop will as­sist in the search for more WA min­er­als, oil and gas.

Mines and Pe­tro­leum Min­is­ter Bill Marmion last week launched the revamped ser­vice, which pro­vides elec­tronic ac­cess to almost 5000 prod­ucts avail­able from the Ge­o­log­i­cal Survey of WA.

Mr Marmion said GSWA’s main role was to pro­vide world-class geo­science in­for­ma­tion.

“Now this is even more ac­ces­si­ble to help re­searchers and ex­plor­ers tar­get the mines of to­mor­row,” he said.

The eBook­shop fea­tures a com­pletely new sys­tem al­low­ing se­cure credit card pur­chas­ing, with some maps, USB data pack­ages and nine pre­mium pub­li­ca­tions avail­able as hard copies.

Ge­o­log­i­cal survey maps, records, re­ports, bul­letins and non-se­ries books can­not be bought in hard copy, but are all avail­able free as PDF files which can be down­loaded.
