Summary

This data release has been updated in 2017 with a newer version that includes additional states. It is recommended to use the updated data and map services of the new data release located at: https://doi.org/10.5066/F78W3CHG These data are part of a larger USGS project to develop an updated geospatial database of mines, mineral deposits and mineral regions in the United States. Mine and prospect-related symbols, such as those used to represent prospect pits, mines, adits, dumps, tailings, etc., hereafter referred to as “mine” symbols or features, are currently being digitized on a state-by-state basis from the 7.5-minute (1:24, 000-scale) and the 15-minute (1:48, 000 and 1:62,500-scale) archive of the USGS Historical Topographic Maps [...]

Purpose

These data are a digital version of mine symbols found on USGS 7.5- and 15-minute series topographic maps. The data are suitable for use in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or other database and geospatial software. Collection of data of this type is a part of the mission of the Mineral Resources Program of the USGS. The information is intended to meet the needs of a wide community of users that extends from geoscience and mineral exploration communities to State and Federal agencies, private industry, and the general public.
