Thirty-four ore, twenty-nine mine waste, seven host rock, two pegmatite, and one slag sample were collected from iron oxide-apatite (IOA) mines in the eastern Adirondack Highlands near Mineville and Ticonderoga, New York, from March 2016 to August 2018. The waste pile samples included twenty-five samples collected from rubble-sized mine waste piles and four samples from processed tailings piles. The ore from historic iron mines of the eastern Adirondack Highlands, New York, contain abundant quantities of rare earth element (REE)-bearing apatite crystals. These apatite crystals are especially enriched in Y, La, Ce, and Nd. In-ground ore, mine waste piles, and tailings piles could contain apatite...
The Geochronology Repository is an active collection of radiometric ages generated by the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology (MBMG). The geochronology data are organized in a public facing database with attributes describing field location, geologic context, geochronology method, and laboratory of analysis. Hand samples, thin sections, heavy mineral separates, and grain mounts of processed samples are stored in the MBMG Geologic Materials Repository. The collection is available to the public.

The iron oxide-apatite (IOA) deposits near Mineville in the Adirondack Mountains, New York, have been of interest for their rich magnetite ore since the mid-1700s but have attracted renewed attention due to their potential as rare earth element (REE) resources (McKeown and Klemic, 1956; Lupulescu and others, 2016; Taylor and others, 2018). Apatite is the main REE-host and is found in variable concentrations within ore seams of the regional magnetite deposits. Some apatite crystals are unaltered, relatively homogenous, and inclusion-free, whereas other deposits contain heterogenous apatite with zones of abundant secondary mineral inclusions that were formed through metasomatic reactions with the apatite after initial...

Apatite [Ca5(PO4)3F], titanite [CaTiSiO5], and rutile [TiO2] samples were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from the Coles Hill uranium deposit, Virginia. The samples (in the form of polished thin sections) were prepared and analyzed for direct age dating on a laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (LA–ICPMS) system at the USGS in Denver, Colorado from August 2017 to March 2019.

Apatite (Ca5(PO4)3(Cl/F/OH)) and rutile (TiO2) samples were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from the iron oxide-apatite-rare earth element (IOA-REE) and iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposits hosted by the Mesoproterozoic, St. Francois Mountains terrane, southeast Missouri. Samples were prepared and analyzed for direct age dating on a laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (LA-ICP-MS) system at the USGS in Denver, Colorado from May 2016 to June 2019.

This data release presents high-spatial resolution geochemical analyses collected from Mesoproterozoic apatite crystals in igneous rocks from the St. Francois Mountains terrane and coeval ore rocks from the Pea Ridge iron oxide-apatite-rare earth element (IOA-REE) and Boss iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposits. These deposits are located in the southeast Missouri iron metallogenic province. These data support a journal article entitled, “Apatite trace element geochemistry and cathodoluminescent textures—A comparison between regional magmatism and the Pea Ridge IOA-REE and Boss IOCG deposits, southeastern Missouri iron metallogenic province, USA” by Celestine N. Mercer, Kathryn E. Watts, and Juliane Gross, that...
The Geologic Materials Repository is an active collection of research specimens gathered by the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology (MBMG). Curated specimens include hand samples, thin sections, powder residues, or heavy mineral separates. The geologic materials are organized in containers and stored on shelves in a designated building located on the Montana Technological University campus. MBMG maintains a public facing database of the collection’s inventory that includes attributes describing the field location, geologic context, materials curated, storage information, and record of analytical work. The collection is available to the public.
