Description:
Abstract:
This metadata describes a series of coverages that were developed by the authors as a result of reviewing all available data and drawing boundaries that they thought included areas that might contain selected deposit types. (The deposit types include both some from the Cox and Singer classification system and some descriptive types that have not been formally described.) The deposit types are:
coal (lignite),
hot springs gold-silver,
gold-silver mixed metal veins,
distal disseminated gold-silver,
antimony veins,
tungsten veins,
low-sulfide gold-quartz veins,
polymetallic layers and veins,
copper-silver polymetallic veins,
manganese layers and veins,
barite layers and veins,
porphyry copper-molybdenum,
copper skarn,
iron skarn,
disseminated copper-silver,
kuroko zinc-copper massive sulfide,
hot spring mercury,
gypsum and anhydrite,
tungsten skarn,
gold-bearing skarn,
disseminated antimony,
zinc-lead skarn, and
copper-gold mixed-metal veins
See USGS Open File Report 98-219A for full descriptions of deposit types. Some deposit types have boundaries for both favorable and permissive areas for the occurrence of that type, although most have only one.
The coverages that contain this information are called
pnfcoal,
pnfcummv,
pnfskncu,
pnfdiscu,
pnfsknfe,
pnfgyp,
pnfhsau,
pnfhshg,
pnflosau,
pnfmmvs,
pnfmnlv,
pnfplylv,
pnfplyvd, and
pnfporcu.
An item in each of these coverages called "CODE" relates to another coverage that contains locations (points) of mineral properties (pnfmines). That coverage contains a lookup table - pnfmines.dm - that describes the meaning of the data in the "CODE" items.
Several related polygon coverages are used to produce maps. These include: pnfbdy (boundary of Payette National Forest), pnfmdist (mining district boundaries), pnftandr (township grid for Forest), pnfsec (section grid), pnftic (15 minute tics), and pnfwild (wilderness boundaries). Three line coverages (pnfrivs - rivers, pnfroad - roads, and pnfsnake - Snake River) were also used. These coverages were obtained either from the Forest Service or U.S. Bureau of Mines (now closed).
Purpose:
The polygons are to be used for estimating where a certain deposit type might be found. The polygons are based on the state of knowledge in the mid 1990's and should not be used for any purposes other than indicating where one type of mineralization might occur.

Currentness_Reference:
publication date; Initial lines were hand drawn with grease pencil on mylar overlay of geologic map of Forest in mid 1990's. These lines were digitized in Arc/Info and attributed. Some modifications of polygons and attributes were done in 1997 to produce the final coverages.

Use_Constraints:
The base was 1:100,000. All lines are approximations at that scale. The data is estimated to be accurate to + - 0.5 cm map distance at the base scale. Acknowledgement of U.S. Geological Survey would be appreciated in products derived form these data.
