Mining Information System – BergIS

According to the Austrian Mineral Resources Act ("Mineralrohstoffgesetz", MinroG) the Federal Minister for Finance has to keep priority notices on all domestic mining permits, including  general maps. Selected data shall be freely accessible on the internet.

In order to comply with this requirement, the Federal Ministry of Finance operates the BergIS geoportal, which comprises the following maps:

  • Exploration areas
  • Production permits
  • Mineral resources owned by the Federal Government
  • Extraction operation plans
  • Prospecting licences

This geoportal enables a query of attribute data (parties holding mining licences, type pf mineral resource) on the indicated rights, a targeted search for administrative units and/or attribute data, as well as printing of the map. Data is also available as OGC Web Map Service (WMS) on the geoportal.
