Hi all,

Here's something that may interest the vocabulary enthusiasts among you - a Geoscience, Minerals and Petroleum Thesaurus currently maintained by the Geological Survey of Western Australia.  It doesn't contain concept descriptions as far as I can tell, but it is maintained as a fully relational ontology of terms covering a very large number of fields of pure and applied geoscience, including geology, mining, metallurgy, geochemistry, geostatistics, mineral processing, materials handling, mining transport, mining economics, etc, etc, etc.

Cheers,
Ollie

PS.  They haven't used cool URI's  ;)
