Petroleum / Mineral / Coal Reports : GNS Science Bibliographic Database

The Petroleum / Mineral / Coal Reports dataset is one of six datasets that make up the Bibliographic Database. Under the Crown Minerals Act, these reports are submitted to the New Zealand government by holders of prospecting, exploration or mining permits and become publicly available at some stage.

Records for and online links to the petroleum / mineral / coal reports are available through the Online Exploration Database ( of NZ Petroleum & Minerals (NZP&M).

Equivalent records for the petroleum / mineral / coal reports were created in the GNS Science Bibliographic Database in order to facilitate the discovery of these items when GNS Science staff search the Bibliographic Database. Links are provided to most of the petroleum reports.

In addition, GNS Staff can search for petroleum reports using the Petroleum Report Search webpage ( where links are also provided either to a copy held by GNS Science or to a copy held by the NZ government.

Every indexed report has a unique BIB ID number in addition to its assigned PR (petroleum), MR (mineral) or CR (coal) number.
