Collection of Paper reports from Idaho


This collection includes records from the Idaho Mine Inspector's office, unpublished site reports, some production data, mine maps, exploration data, donated company data, some Bureau of Mines mineral property files, donated consultant's reports. The Mines and Prospects Data Files contain reports, mostly one-of-a-kind and/or unpublished, with information about one or more of Idaho's over 8,800 mines and prospects. These reports are irreplaceable and need to be made available in digital form and on the web for researchers to access. The long-term plan for this collection calls for scanning the materials and placing them on the web where they are available for all users to access.
