Permits to explore for and (or) develop mineral resources onFederal lands can be used to indicate locations and types ofmineral-related activities on national forests. Permits for theseactivities require filing of a Notice of Intent to conduct mineralexploration activities and (or) a Plan of Operation, ifsignificant land disturbance results. This compilation of noticesand plans for the Colville, Kaniksu, Okanogan, and Wenatcheenational forests between 1967 and 1998 is intended for use incombination with geologic and economic information to predictfuture mineral-related activities in the region.

This metadata file (pbrchseg.met) describes three shape files used.Shape file rivreach.shp contains the upstream and downstreamboundaries of seven reaches of the river. Natural features defineriver-reach boundaries at the confluence of the North and Southforks of the Coeur d'Alene (CdA) River, the transition from agravel- to a sand- bottomed channel, the mouth of the river, andthe base of the delta front. Other river-reach boundaries are atmidpoints between river-channel drill transects. River-reachboundaries provide end limits for Estimation Units, for whichthickness, volume, tonnage, and lead content of Pb-rich sedimentwere estimated.Shape file segments.shp contains up- and down-valley boundariesof 3 sections...

This is a spatial database that delineates mining-relatedfeatures in areas of historic and active phosphate mining in thecore of the southeastern Idaho phosphate resource area. The datahas varying degrees of accuracy and attribution detail. Thebreakdown of areas by type of activity at active mines isdetailed; however, the disturbed areas at many of the closed orinactive mines are not subdivided into specific categoriesdetailing the type of activity that occurred.

This report presents the results of over 1100 geochemicalanalyses of samples of soil and sediment from the Coeur d'Al�ne(CdA) drainage basin in northern Idaho. The location(in 3 dimensions) and a lithological description of each sampleis included with the laboratory analytical data. Methods ofsample location, collection, preparation, digestion andgeochemical analysis are described. Five differentlaboratories contributed geochemical data for this reportand the quality control procedures used by each laboratoryare described. Comparison of the analytical accuracy andprecision of each laboratory is given by comparing analysesof standard reference materials and of splits of CdA samples.These geochemical data are presented...

Most information was obtained from MRDS (U. S. Geological SurveyMineral Resource Data System). The data was put into GSMODS (a USGSdesigned database). The data was modified by field examination by theauthors. An arc output was generated from GSMODS and a point coveragewas created.

This metadata file (cdafldpl.met) describes three shape files.Shape file cdasurf4_utm.shp, with its associated .shx and .dbf files,contains polygons and attributes for a map of geologic and wetlandunits and systems, which represent sedimentary depositionalenvironments of the Coeur d'Alene (CdA) River valley. This map extendsbeyond the lateral and longitudinal boundaries of the area studiedfor this report.Shape file fldpln2.shp was derived from shape file cdasurf4.shp bytrimming it to the study area for this report, which includes theCdA River channel and floodplain, from the confluence of its Northand South forks, to the base of its delta, in CdA Lake.Shape file fpaream2.shp was derived from fldpln2.shp by merging...

This metadata file (pbsamthk.met) describes two dBase4 tables.One table (alsamPb.dbf) contains UTM coordinates for 998surface-sediment geochemical sample sites, and concentration oflead, in parts per million (ppm Pb), in each sample. The other table(thkpb11.dbf) contains UTM coordinates for 428 point locations,thickness (in centimeters) of Pb-rich sediment, and thickness-interval weighted-average lead concentration in each stratigraphicsection of Pb-rich sediment.These data were compiled from ten different studies referenced herein,in which different methods were used to digest and chemicallyanalyze samples. Total analytical uncertainty (including uncertaintyin estimation of area, density, and Pb concentration)...
