OreFull Mineral Textures has rare Mineral Texture Atlases and Mineral exploration licences (Mining Tenements) for sale.

Geologist James Stewart has collected an amazing range of mineral specimens over a long career as an Exploration Geologist. He is now opening his collection to view via a series of detailed Atlases of Mineral Textures. Available as  field-ready atlases, deluxe coffee-table editions or high resolution digital images these atlases explore the geology of famous sites from discovery to completion. Some of the specimens shown are samples from ores now buried under metres of overburden.

Tenements are Exploration Licences that permit the owner to explore and develop mineral deposits in the licenced area.

The tenements here are focussed on gold and copper deposits. They were mapped and licenced by experienced exploration geologist Jim Stewart whose remarkable history of successful ore finding is listed in our “About” page. Jim has also shared some of his amazing, gorgeous and rare images shot during more than twenty years of exploring remote Australia, New Guinea and Irian Jaya.

Tenements are available with the following commodities:

  • Gold(1)
  • Copper(1)
