GeologyOntario is an online warehouse that contains all of the publically available digital data collected by the Mines and Minerals division. All data is available for download and can be discovered by using spatial and attribute-based search.
The GeologyOntario Web site will be undergoing a significant change in early 2016. As a result of hardware upgrades and the requirement for the site to be compliant with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), the search functionality will be simplified.
This affects all databases.
Further information on these changes and the use of the new site will be provided in early 2016. If you have any questions, please contact the Publications Services Unit.
Please note that geoscience and mineral exploration data collected by the Mines and Minerals Division can be viewed spatially using the OGSEarth application (www.ontario.ca/ogsearth).
GeologyOntario provides access to all Ontario Geological Survey maps, reports and digital datasets. Other data is also available, including:
- Client-submitted assessment files
- Mineral deposits
- Rock sample lithogeochemical analysis
- Drill hole records
- Mining hazards including abandonded mines
