Phosphatic material, such as cave earth or guano, was extracted on a small scale in the past from caves in Palaeozoic limestone at several localities in New South Wales. Known phosphate occurrences are small and of low grade.There is some potential for the discovery of economic phosphate rock deposits in the southern Eromanga Basin (Great Australian Basin) where thin, mostly low-grade phosphatic siltstones were intersected in drillholes during exploration undertaken in the early 1980s.
