This is a spatial database that delineates mining-related features in areas of historic and active phosphate mining in the core of the southeastern Idaho phosphate resource area. The data has varying degrees of accuracy and attribution detail. The breakd
This report is a tabular presentation of mineral activities for mining and exploration in Washington during 1985 to 1997. The data may be incomplete as it depended on published data or data volunteered by operators.
This report presents the results of over 1100 geochemical analyses of samples of soil and sediment from the Coeur d'Alène (CdA) drainage basin in northern Idaho. The location (in 3 dimensions) and a lithological description of each sample is included wit
This metadata file (cdafldpl.met) describes three shape files. Shape file cdasurf4_utm.shp, with its associated .shx and .dbf files, contains polygons and attributes for a map of geologic and wetland units and systems, which represent sedimentary depositi
This metadata file (pbrchseg.met) describes three shape files used. Shape file rivreach.shp contains the upstream and downstream boundaries of seven reaches of the river. Natural features define river-reach boundaries at the confluence of the North and So
This metadata file (pbsamthk.met) describes two dBase4 tables. One table (alsamPb.dbf) contains UTM coordinates for 998 surface-sediment geochemical sample sites, and concentration of lead, in parts per million (ppm Pb), in each sample. The other table (t
Most information was obtained from MRDS (U. S. Geological Survey Mineral Resource Data System). The data was put into GSMODS (a USGS designed database). The data was modified by field examination by the authors. An arc output was generated from GSMODS and
Permits to explore for and (or) develop mineral resources on Federal lands can be used to indicate locations and types of mineral-related activities on national forests. Permits for these activities require filing of a Notice of Intent to conduct mineral
