The Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, commonly known as East Timor, comprises the eastern half of the island of Timor, the nearby islands of Atauro and Jaco and Oecussi-Ambeno, an exclave on the northwestern side of the island within Indonesian West Timor.

East Timor was colonized by Portugal in the 16th century, and was known as Portuguese Timor until Portugal's decolonization of the country. In late 1975, East Timor declared its independence, but later that year was invaded and occupied by Indonesia and was declared Indonesia's 27th province the following year. In 1999, following the United Nations-sponsored act of self-determination, Indonesia relinquished control of the territory and East Timor became the first new sovereign state of the 21st century on May 20, 2002.

East Timor is divided into 13 administrative districts. The districts are subdivided into 65 subdistricts, 442 sucos (villages) and 2225 aldeias (hamlets).



Dada a ausência de informação no Mindat sobre Timor Leste, aqui ficam alguns dados sobre a sua geologia.

Geologia de Timor Leste: breve resumo por P. F. T. Kaul
Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE),
Florianópolis, SC, Brasil - Outubro/2004.

As rochas e os sedimentos do Timor-Leste constituem dois domínios geológicos: um, chamado de Autóctone, constituído por rochas e sedimentos gerados “in situ” ; outro, designado de Alóctone, composto por rochas formadas alhures, porém transportadas às regiões onde atualmente se encontram como conseqüência de intensas movimentações tectônicas.
O Domínio Autóctone distribui-se por todo o país, inclusive no enclave de Oecussi. É predominante, entretanto, na metade leste do território timorense (região que se estende, aproximadamente, do meridiano que passa em Manatuto àquele do ilhéu Jaco), tendo presença expressiva no sudoeste deste território (áreas de Bononaro e Ainaro e respectivas vizinhanças). Ele consiste numa sucessão de diferentes tipos de rochas, formadas desde o Permiano Inferior, há aproximadamente 280 milhões de anos, até o Pleistoceno, há cerca de 2 milhões de anos, com lacuna provável de tal formação de rochas no período Cretáceo (intervalo aproximado dos 140 aos 70 milhões de anos). São folhelhos, intercalados por calcários e, eventualmente, por arenitos, conglomerados e lavas básicas. Integram-no, também, consistindo sua porção mais jovem, depósitos quaternários recentes: sedimentos fluviais e marinhos, além de recifes corálicos elevados. Os sedimentos marinhos correspondem às planícies costeiras, que dominam na costa sul do país. Os recifes corálicos elevados são construções calcárias constituídas principalmente por exoesqueletos de corais, que ocorrem nas áreas de Baucau e Los Palos, bem como no ilhéu Jacó.
O Domínio Alóctone corresponde a um “complexo carreado” que se estende, principal-mente, no noroeste do país – região de Balibo, Ermera, Dili, Aileu, Laclubar, etc., ocorrendo também no enclave de Oecussi. Ele é constituído por rochas metamórficas de baixo e médio grau de metamorfismo, além de rochas ígneas, formadas, todas elas, do Permiano Inferior, há cerca de 280 milhões de anos, ao Eoceno, há mais ou menos 50 milhões de anos. Trata-se de xistos sericíticos, micaxistos com biotita, anfibolitos, mármores, diversos tipos de calcário, margas, brechas vulcânicas e rochas eruptivas.
Os bens minerais do país ocorrem em todo o território nacional, correspondendo, em grande maioria, a ocorrências cuja potencialidade não está ainda definida:
- Minerais metálicos: cobre, chumbo/zinco, ouro, prata, manganês.
- Minerais não-metálicos: talco, magnesita, fosforita.
- Materiais de construção: rochas carbonáticas (calcários, dolomitos e mármores), argilas, caulim, areia, cascalho.
- Combustíveis fósseis, na plataforma continental do mar de Timor: petróleo e gás natural.
