The current database consists of location 9,032 entries. The surface-based, point data include 5,272, 6,939, and 903 density, magnetic susceptibility, and NRM measurements, respectively. Downhole data from 146 drillcore have also been incorporated, yielding an additional 1,145 and 9,622 measurements of density and magnetic susceptibility, respectively. Geologic interpretation of gravity and magnetic anomaly data in a given area is greatly enhanced if density, magnetic susceptibility (MS) and natural remanent magnetization (NRM) data are available for representative rock-types (Chandler and others, 2008). Along with geologic information from outcrop and drill-holes, rock property data help relate geophysical anomaly...

Minnesota Geological Survey, in cooperation with industry, sampled the State of Minnesota and adjacent regions for till geochemistry and indicator minerals at a 30-km spacing during summer 2004. Within target cells, each a quarter-degree latitude by a half-degree longitude, till from between about 1 and 2 m depth was sampled by filling a 15 liter plastic pail. At a few sites, vertical profiles were collected. In addition, three transects to the north were sampled, to help identify sediments derived by long-distance glacial transport, to obtain reference samples from the Thompson nickel belt, and also to extend sampling to the limit of Hudson Bay-derived carbonate-bearing sediments, to permit comparison to Minnesota...

This collection consists of samples with age data and associated information for available radiometric dates for rocks and minerals in Alaska. The sample records and their associated publications were loaded into the Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys division-wide database. A legacy Microsoft Access database exists that includes dates for all available U-Pb, K-Ar, 40Ar/39Ar, and Rb-Sr data for Alaska through 2007. Previous compilations by Wilson and others (1990) and U.S. Geological Survey (1999) provided the initial source of age data. Additional radiometric dates were compiled from both published and unpublished sources. This legacy project added essential basic supporting information that...

This collection is comprised of oil- and gas-related well cores and cuttings from wells drilled to either test for the presence of liquid or gas fossil fuels, examine subsurface stratigraphy and structures, or to produce liquid or gas fossil fuels. All well data in the Alaska Geologic Materials Center (GMC) database represents both exploration and production wells. Core has been donated by oil and gas exploration companies as well as state and federal agencies. This oil and gas related sample collection includes core, core chip, side wall core, cuttings, and unwashed cutting samples as well as oil and gas related surface and shot-hole samples.

This sample collection consists of a 1997 donation from the Shell Oil Company to the Alaska Geological Materials Center. It contains approximately 68,000 samples of following types: dart (short seafloor cores), seismic shothole, outcrop, and megafossils. 80% of the collection are outcrop samples. 5 percent of the collection has been inventoried with specific locations. Most of the collection is in good shape though many megafossil sample bags need to be replaced. The remainder of the collection will be inventoried in a future data preservation project

Hand specimens of rocks collected as a part of field work conducted primarily by present and former WGNHS staff members. Entries include rock hand samples related to WGNHS research projects with adequate geographic location information. These are available in the National Digital Catalog as of September 14, 2010. Documentation supporting other individual items in this data collection is currently being developed. Most of the hand samples are tied to field notebooks. Accession lists for the hand samples are available, but electronic versions of these notebooks are not currently available. Plans to integrate these into the existing master database of WGNHS data is under development. There are approximately 4,800 hand...

This collection as a whole includes diamond drill core from hardrock/lode mineral prospects that have been donated to the Alaska Geologic Materials Center (GMC) by private entities or that have been recovered from properties during reclamation of historic mine and exploration sites by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The core is stored in waxed cardboard or plastic boxes. Mineralized portions, and in some cases the entire the core, has been split and sampled. Some core may have been quartered and sampled, or entirely consumed. The condition and completeness of the core varies widely. The core is housed on metal shelving in steel shipping containers. The containers are locked and secure, free of vermin, and protected...
