Mineral Resource Assessment of the Payette National Forest, West-Central Idaho

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

Generalized Surficial Geologic Map of the Pueblo 1° x 2° Quadrangle, Colorado

Fifty-three types of surficial geologic deposits and residual materials of Quaternary age are described in a pamphlet and located on a map of the greater Pueblo area, in part of the Front Range, in the Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and on the plains

Geologic datasets for weights of evidence analysis in northeast Washington--4. Mineral industry activity in Washington, 1985-1997.

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.

Geologic datasets for weights of evidence analysis in northeast Washington--3. Minerals-related permits on national forests, 1967 to 1998

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

Geochemical analyses of soils and sediments, Coeur d'Alène drainage basin, Idaho: Sampling, analytical methods, and results.

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

Lead-rich sediments, Coeur d'Alene River valley, Idaho; Area, volume, tonnage, and lead content: Geologic and wetland unit data

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

Lead-rich sediments, Coeur d'Alene River valley, Idaho; Area, volume, tonnage, and lead content: River reach data (by segment)

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

Lead-rich sediments, Coeur d'Alene River valley, Idaho; Area, volume, tonnage, and lead content: Surface-sediment geochemical data

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

Digital database of mining-related features at selected historic and active phosphate mines, Bannock, Bear Lake, Bingham, and Caribou Counties, Idaho

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
