This manuscript describes a new map displaying the mineral resources of Wales, produced by the British Geological Survey. This is the first time mineral resources have been displayed on a national extent using a consistent methodology for Wales. This work recognises that it is essential that minerals are used in the most efficient and sustainable manner so that they can continue to make a vital contribution to the economy of Wales. These maps will assist local authorities to deliver national planning policy by depicting the location and extent of mineral resources throughout Wales in a consistent fashion and facilitate the development of more effective and sustainable management strategies.
