This dataset provides location information for the seismic reflection line CRmv across Crowleys Ridge in the New Madrid seismic zone, central US. The seismic reflection data are interpreted and discussed in the associated publication
Airborne geophysical surveys were conducted in the eastern Adirondacks from Dec. 7, 2015 - Dec. 21, 2015, by Goldak Airborne Surveys. The area was flown along a draped surface with a nominal survey height above ground of 200 meters. The flight line spacing was 250 meters for traverse lines and 2500 meters for control lines. Here we present downloadable magnetic and radiometric (gamma spectrometry) data from those surveys as image (Geotiff) and flight line data (csv format). Background The Eastern Adirondacks region was known for iron mining in the 1800's and 1900's but it also contains deposits of rare earth minerals. Rare earth minerals are used in advanced technology such as in cell phones, rechargeable batteries...
Magnetic susceptibility was measured on outcropping rock in the eastern Adirondack Mountains, New York. A Terraplus KT-20 was used for the measurements. The corresponding rock type was identified using standard field geologic approaches. Locations of the outcrops were determined using a handheld GPS.
Thirty-four ore, twenty-nine mine waste, seven host rock, two pegmatite, and one slag sample were collected from iron oxide-apatite (IOA) mines in the eastern Adirondack Highlands near Mineville and Ticonderoga, New York, from March 2016 to August 2018. The waste pile samples included twenty-five samples collected from rubble-sized mine waste piles and four samples from processed tailings piles. The ore from historic iron mines of the eastern Adirondack Highlands, New York, contain abundant quantities of rare earth element (REE)-bearing apatite crystals. These apatite crystals are especially enriched in Y, La, Ce, and Nd. In-ground ore, mine waste piles, and tailings piles could contain apatite...
Airborne magnetic data are provided here as part of the data release, 'Airborne magnetic and radiometric survey, Virginia and North Carolina Fall Zone, 2021.' This website includes the processed aeromagnetic data provided in an ascii .csv file and a geoTIFF image showing the total magnetic intensity. The contractor report is available on the parent page.

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact
