Tengraph WEB Research Gold Localities and Land Ownership

Gidday All,

Our seminars have been oversubscribed so thank you to all those people who have booked for the Gold Prospecting Seminars in Cue this year.

We are looking forward to the seminars and meeting you all, thank you for your support.

Todays email is about Tengraph Web, which is an online program from the Department of Mines, Industry, Regulation and Safety (forevermore know as DMIRS) which provides you all the mining tenement information necessary for you to go legally prospecting in WA.

However, Tengraph WEB also provides you information like Land types and Ownership with Topo, Geo and Satellite images so you can really drill down and research infromation about the area you want to go prospecting.

It is running in parallel with Tengraph Online at present and possibly will replace the Tengraph online software in time.

This is an incredibly flexible, information rich, easy to use program that once you "Get it" you wont go back to Tengraph Online again.

So this newsletter provides some information about it which is explored further on our webpage.

What is Tengraph WEB?

Tengraph Web is an online program run by the Department of Mines Industry Regulations and Safety (DMIRS), to enable you to understand:

  • Mining tenements in WA whether they are granted or pending. OR if the ground is not pegged at all!
  • It shows Mining, Prospecting or Exploration Tenements
  • The Land use Types of all WA land. Such as reserves, Vacant Crown Land, Freehold land, Native Title land, A class reserves, Pastoral Lease land and their boundaries.
  • Vacant land or land available for Metal Detecting or Mineral Exploration.
  • The details of Mining Leases which change every night from Monday to Friday.

It also provides information from other databases and maps such as:

  • Mineral Titles Online - Tenements current or historical.
  • WAMEX (Mining Tenement file exploration reports)
  • MINEDEX (Mine site and Mineral Deposit information including Historical Goldmines)
  • Topographical Maps.
  • Geological Maps. 1:100000 and 1:250000
  • Satellite Imagery.
  • With almost infinite ways of viewing and using the information to target potential gold localities where you can legally go metal detecting in WA.

It is an Awesome Program! The DMIRS should be congratulated on the development of Tengraph Web for prospectors.

Difference between Tengraph Web and GeoMap WA

There are a number of differences but the main thing to understand is that Tengraph Web is an ONLINE program that gives you data about land use and tenements in West Australia whereas GeoMap is a Windows Program that you can use on your PC OFFLINE while you are travelling and prospecting in the bush.


Tengraph Web - a View of the Online Interface.

GeoMap is a DMIRS Program that is used on your Windows PC offline.

GeoMap WA uses the data provided by DMIRS Data and Software Centre.

You download all of the Maps and Shapefiles that you need to create a project and use it in the bush on your PC.

That data in GeoMap can be the same that is shown on Tengraph WEB such as;

- Tenements Shapefiles (BUT you must download the shapefiles for Tenements to ensure the Current Tenements on GeoMap are up to date when you go prospecting).

- Minedex (Mineral Deposit information including Gold Occurrences).

- Abandoned Mines.

- Wamex (Mining Tenement Exploration Reports).

AND You can also add Geological, topographical and other maps freely downloadable from DMIRS to GeoMap so you can have a very accurate picture of the places where you are Legally allowed to go prospecting and where the gold might be.

With GeoMap you can also attach an inexpensive GPS Aerial to your Windows PC and know EXACTLY where you are on the ground when you are in the bush.
