Summary

The point and polygon layers within this geodatabase represent locations of mineral occurrences, mines, mining and mineral districts and sites of active mineral exploration within or near the Department of the Interior (DOI) Sagebrush Focal Areas in Montana, Wyoming and Utah, central Idaho, and the Oregon-Nevada-Idaho border area. The data were compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Mineral Deposit Database project (USMIN) to provide mineral resource information for use in the USGS Sagebrush Mineral Resource Assessment (SaMiRA). This assessment was conducted for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and evaluated the mineral resource potential of approximately 10 million acres of Federal lands identified as areas of high-quality [...]

Purpose

These data were developed to support the USGS Sagebrush Mineral-Resource Assessment. The point and polygon vector data in the geodatabase are suitable for use in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or other database and geospatial software. The data provide information on current and past mining and exploration activity and known mineral occurrences. The data may be used to develop maps, perform geospatial analyses, or to evaluate mineral resource potential of mineral resources in the areas covered by the data. The information is intended to meet the needs of a wide community of users that includes the geoscience and mineral exploration communities as well as State and Federal agencies, private industry, and the general public.
