The Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology (MBMG) Mining Property File collection was amassed over the years through private and industry donations of engineering and geologic reports, pictures, correspondence, news clippings, and production information. The collection presently contains over 4,400 property-specific files (records). The physical files are organized first by Montana county and then by mine or project name. Files may contain information related to a particular mining claim, a collection of claims, or a mining exploration project. Metadata describing each record includes property name, location (county, historical mining district, township, range and section), georeferences (latitude and longitude), and...

Richard (Dick) Hahman was born in Buffalo, New York, in 1936. He grew up in coal mining towns in Pennsylvania, then later in Washington, D.C. He received his master's in geology from the University of West Virginia. His career took him through the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Chile. He worked for several companies in Tucson, Arizona, before going to work for Conoco Inc. in Oklahoma City in the early 1980s. In the late '80s he started his consulting company, Hahman & Associates, in Las Cruces, New Mexico. He moved back to Tucson around 1997. The collection contains geologic reports, drill logs, maps, assays, photos and field notes from exploration in Arizona and New Mexico.

This collection contains the original and only copies of oil & gas scout tickets handwritten by the late Mr. Neill Wills. The information on the scout tickets came from Mr. Wills' personal geological files and information. Therefore, the information preserved in this collection is unique and one-of-a-kind. Wells are from all parts of New mexico, but are concentrated in the Permian Basin area. Texas records have not been inventoried. Neil Wills scout tickets - 20445 pages of handwritten oil & gas well scout tickets from 18125 oil & gas wells left to us by the late geologist Neil Wills. They contain Mr. Wills' personal information on the wells and are not available elsewhere. Stored in binders on 8 1/2 x 11 in...
This measured section collection consists of written descriptions of rock unit sequences measured along roads, railroads, trails, strip mine highwalls, etc. in the Tennessee coal fields. Most of the collection is composed of sections measured by Dr. Harold Wanless during his study of the southern Appalachian coal fields in the late 1930?s. Most of Wanless? sections are unpublished except as columnar section illustrations in GSA Memoir 13. Other measured sections in this collection originate from published and unpublished sources.
This collection includes field notes, interpretive geologic field maps, field station location maps, and other project materials, many of which are unpublished and archived by the Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys. These materials have not been reviewed for accuracy, consistency, or completeness. The collection may contain data and documents pertaining to all related fields of geology, including oil and gas, geologic engineering, minerals industry, scientific data, and agency archives.
Cores represent over 2,000 individual core sites drilled across the State of Wisconsin; stored in over 56,000 (mainly cardboard) boxes; representing approximately 650,000 linear feet of the subsurface. The Flambeau Core subcollection, approximately 3 percent of the collection of rock cores from Wisconsin, has extensive metadata produced as part of an FY2015 data preservation proejct. Documentation for the Wisconsin core collection is routinely updated, as information becomes available.
This dataset is a collection of unpublished geologic field maps and transfer maps that represent over 100 years of field data collected by Virginia geological survey staff. These field records include hand-drawn notes, strike and dip, contacts, economic, structure and paleo information. Some maps have been scanned and are available digitally. Most maps are located in our Charlottesville, Va offices in paper format. All are unique, one-of-a-kind documents.
The Historic Images Collection includes approximately 14,500 photographs, slides, lantern slides and digital media in this collection were taken during the course of geologic, mineral resource, and geologic hazard investigations carried out by Division of Geology and Mineral Resources’ geoscientists and Division of Mineral Mining staff beginning in the first half of the 20th century. The collection includes images of important rock outcrops that demonstrate key features of stratigraphic units, fossils indicative of the age of rock formations, outcrop-scale geologic structures such as faults and folds, economically significant minerals and mine sites, and geologic hazards such as landslides and sinkholes. Images...
This dataset is a collection of unpublished geologic field notebooks and links to corresponding "Unpublished Geologic Map Collection from VA" (i.e., field maps) that represent over 100 years of field data collected by Virginia geological survey staff.

This inventory describes photos taken by A. L. Flagg during his travels as a mining engineer over the period 1905 to 1955 and they capture life in developing western North America. The photographs were largely identified using notes made by A.L. Flagg, research of Arizona Department of Mines and Mineral Resources' (ADMMR) mine files and mining periodicals of the time. Principle photograph locations are in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Rhode Island, and Washington along with Durango and Oaxaca, Mexico. Arthur Leonard Flagg was born June 29, 1883, the son of Charles Welford and Anna R. (Daley) Flagg. He earned his bachelor’s degree in geology at Brown University in 1906. As a young mining engineer Arthur Flagg followed...
The West Oatman Project collection consists of 92 folders of information on mineral investigations in the western part of the Oatman Metallic Mineral District, Mohave County. The principal mines or groups investigated were the Black Wonder, Moss, AL, ALX, RAL, and FB claims. The folders contain geological and geochemical reports, maps, drill results and related materials.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Geologic Sections dataset consists of site-specific, large-scale geologic cross-sections (composite sheets). These sections were acquired from VDOT in order to save them from disposal. There are 5,500 geological profiles created for highway construction projects containing extensive core, auger and split-spoon logs at scales of 1:50 and 1:100 providing a unique record of subsurface geological and geotechnical data along roadways throughout Virginia. The thousands of feet of vertical subsurface data represents millions of dollars of investment in data acquisition by VDOT. The sections are useful as indicators of subsurface geology in large parts of Virginia. ...
