Summary

This dataset is a compilation of boundary location polygons for 167 hydraulic mine pits located in northern California. This dataset was compiled from three sources, Topographically Occurring Mine Symbols (TOMS) database produced by the California Department of Conservation (2001), Yeend (1974), and on-screen digitizing, using current (2015) satellite imagery, of additional hydraulic mine pits not contained in either of these sources.

Purpose

This dataset of hydraulic mine pits was compiled as part of a regional research study attempting to model fish tissue mercury concentrations for streams in the northern Sierra Nevada mountains of California, by using multiple landscape characteristics as model input.
