G.J. Orris and J.D. Bliss compiled the data on Afghanistan mineral resources from previously published compilations, other published sources, and project files. Locations were taken from published sources; no effort was made to determine the correctness of these data beyond a preliminary review to be sure they plot in the correct country and reconciliation of duplicate and conflicting data where possible. Most of the latitudes-longitudes are believed to be within 5 minutes of their true locations, but other locations may be highly inaccurate.
This dataset was compiled due to interest in Afghanistan and anticipated continuing interest as post-war aid and reconstruction begin.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
