Summary

This data release consists of a compilation of previously published mineral potential maps that were used for the Sagebrush Mineral-Resource Assessment (SaMiRA) project. This information was used as guides for assessing mineral potential assessment of approximately 10 million acres in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. Specifically, the compilation was used to identify the deposit types to be assessed and the deposit models to develop. The data release consists of georeferenced images of mineral potential maps and vector shapefiles of mineral potential tracts. The georeferenced images are presented in two formats: 1) as images within raster mosaic datasets in Esri geodatabases, and 2) as individual tiff images with an accompanying [...]

Purpose

These datasets were compiled to assist with the Sagebrush Mineral-Resource Assessment (SaMiRA) project. This compilation helped in determining what deposit types needed to be assessed, which deposit models were in need of being developed, and where previously determined areas of possible mineral resource potential was located.
