About the Idaho Geological Survey

The Idaho Geological Survey is a public service and research agency at the University of Idaho. Idaho statute directs the Survey to collect, interpret, and disseminate geologic and mineral data for the state. Members of the Idaho Geological Survey staff acquire geologic information through field and laboratory investigations and through cooperative programs with other governmental and private agencies. The information is made publicly available in publications, the agency Web site, and through oral and written communication. The Idaho Geological Survey's geologic mapping program is the primary applied research function of the agency. The Survey's Digital Mapping Laboratory is central to compiling, producing, and delivering new digital geologic maps. Other main Idaho Geological Survey programs include geologic hazards, hydrology, mining, mine safety training, abandoned and inactive mines inventory, and earth science education outreach. As Idaho grows, demand is increasing for geologic information related to population growth, mineral- and water-resource development, landslide hazards and earthquake monitoring.

Founded in 1919, the Survey was originally known as the Bureau of Mines and Geology. Legislation in 1984 reorganized and renamed the agency the Idaho Geological Survey. Members of the Survey’s Advisory Board represent the mining industry, public agencies, higher education, and professional geologists. In addition to its main office in Moscow, the Survey has two branch offices: one in Boise at Boise State University and the other in Pocatello at Idaho State University.
