The Territory critical minerals plan

The Territory critical minerals plan helps position the Territory as a strategically important jurisdiction in the production, processing and manufacturing of minerals important to the high technology, battery and defence sectors.

The Northern Territory has released a three-point plan to communicate the Territory’s potential to be a key destination for international investment and to play a greater role in the critical minerals value chain.

The Territory is well positioned to attract international investment with strong reserves in critical minerals including copper, lithium, vanadium, rare earths, tungsten and cobalt, and with established logistics capability for exporting critical minerals to international markets.

The three point plan seeks to:

  • accelerate exploration for critical minerals
  • support critical minerals projects to commence production
  • grow refining, processing and manufacturing of critical minerals in the Territory.

The plan aims to set a high level road map to further develop the Territory’s strategic mineral reserves and to showcase the Territory’s competitive advantages to potential investors, other jurisdictions and the Australian Government.
