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...

This collection primarily contains economic geologic information on mines in Mohave County, but also includes more general files on other states and mineral commodities. William Crutchfield, Jr. earned his master's degree from The University of California in 1953. He began working for Santa Fe Mining, Inc. in California in the 1960s as a Mining Engineer and later as Exploration Manager. He stayed with the company until the 1980s.

The Historic Photographs Collection includes approximately 13,000 photographs and slides 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 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. Slides and photographs are available online in JPG format. High resolution...

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 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.

Cores represent over 2,300 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 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...

The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG) Mining District Files (also known as NVGEODEX) is a collection containing about 27,000 items consisting of about 150,000 pages of correspondence, reports, maps, assays, datasets, photographs, newspaper clippings, journal articles, company reports, and government publications. The media is paper, linen, vellum, mylar, cardboard, microfilm and fiche, and photographic paper. This database is the electronic index of the entire collection which includes links to the most of the material that was scanned through 12/31/2015. Most of the items were scanned as TIFs and converted to PDFs for internet availability. Access is through the NBMG main website at http://www.nbmg.unr.edu,...

Borehole geophysical logs: This collection of borehole geophysical logs includes logs generated by the Minnesota Geological Survey, and logs generated by others and donated to the MGS. All the logs are from boreholes in the State of Minnesota. This collection of borehole geophysical data contains natural gamma logs, single point resistivity logs, spontaneous potential logs, caliper logs, temperature, multipoint resistivity, and flow meter logs. Approximately two-thirds of the logs were collected digitally in a proprietary format, and are now available as pdf files. The remaining one-third of logs were scanned into pdf format. The stratigraphic interpretations of each log are available from the Minnesota Well Index...

The Field Notes collection mainly consists of hand-written descriptions of outcrops, measured sections, gravel pits, and other geologic sites in Iowa. The majority of these notes were contained in paper files, organized by county. Pertinent information from the files was entered in the GeoSam database and associated documents were scanned and uploaded for public view.

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. ...

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...

Paper files for 1061 entries for oil and gas well files whether drilled or not. The files are filed by: 1) dry hole or producer; 2) county; 3) operator; 4) well; 5) well file or log file. The files are copies of documents required to be turned in to the Nevada Division of Minerals, which is the main state regulatory agency for petroleum exploration. Also, the NBMG has some many files that predate 1954 when the state took over permitting. The files contain permits, sundry notices, logs, geology reports, scout cards, drill stem tests, and other items. Many of the drilled wells have cuttings that are described as a separate collection. About 670 files contain some kind of log, the electric logs of which are filed in...

The geophysical log collection consists of the various logs run on scientific coreholes, water, injection, oil and gas, observation and monitor wells throughout the state. The collection represents approximately 5320 boreholes,some of which are also represented in the core and well cuttings sample collection. The physical geophysical log collection is currently stored in four file cabinets, organized by county. These paper logs are long, continuous, accordion sheets. Some of the logs are printed on delicate onion skin paper; many others are on thermal paper. Old thermal paper tends to turn black or lose contrast, and many of the documents in the collection are fading or faded. The logs include the following types:...
