Abandoned mines exist throughout the country, with approximately 300,000 abandoned mines located in the Appalachian region. Abandoned mines create safety concerns for active underground mining operations and surface facilities.
Mining districts in Arizona are categorized by the specific geologic environment in which the mineral deposit formed - see the accompanying mineral resource map. Base- and precious-metal mining districts are classified by the dollar value of metals produced.
Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, usually from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, reef or placer deposit.These deposits form a mineralized package that is of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal, oil shale, gemstones, limestone, chalk, dimension stone, rock salt, potash, gravel, and clay.

The Coal Mine Information System (CMIS) is a repository for historical coal mining information in Indiana. It was developed through a cooperative agreement between the Indiana Geological Survey and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Reclamation.
The Mine Map Information Center has for more than 30 years operated the Mine Map Repository for the Office of Mine Safety and Licensing (OMSL). This program is sponsored by the U.K. Center for Applied Energy Research in coordination with the Office of Surface Mining's (OSM) Mine Map Repository in Pittsburgh and is operated out of the ...
InfoMine provides comprehensive information on mining, the mining industry, mining technology and mineral exploration. InfoMine categories include mining news, mining jobs, mining equipment, mineral commodities, and professional development
gis, maps and mine data MMD uses a Geographic Information System (GIS) to locate and track its mining activities in the state. This is a computer system that can capture, store, analyze and display geographically referenced (location) information.
Symbols indicating mining-related features digitized from historical USGS topographic maps in the conterminous US. Includes prospect pits, mine shafts and adits, quarries, open-pit mines, tailings piles and ponds, gravel and borrow pits, and other features.
Mining and Minerals. Mineral development is an important land use within the BLM's multiple-use mandate. In communities across the country, mining provides jobs, economic activity and important commodities that are essential to maintain a high quality of life.
The Washington Geologic Information Portal puts complex geologic and hazards information into the hands of everyone, including you. This application allows you to quickly compare and synthesize data of different types to help solve a variety of problems. Enter the Portal by clicking the icon below.
Furthermore, since most mining engineers are familiar with topographic maps and their uses, this paper discusses only certain data, presented on topographic maps but generally overlooked by the engineer because he fails either to read the map properly or to use the information which it contains.
Home About Placer Mining Placer Mining in BC MTO Maps, Info & Admin Links Contact. Home. Welcome to BC Placer This website is about placer mining in BC - finding and mining gold that has been deposited by moving water. It is not about "hard rock" mining in solid rock.
The New Mexico Mines Database contains information, where available, on mine sites that can be used in conjunction with the geoenvironmental models to better understand, predict, minimize, and remediate possible environmental impacts at a mine site or within a mining district.

The National Mine Map Repository (NMMR) collects and maintains mine map information and images for all types of mining for the entire country. National Mine Map Repository (NMMR) Web Map showing the location of maps identified by the NMMR. Some of the maps are scanned and online. Other images may be requested.
The National Geologic Map Database (NGMDB) is a congressionally mandated project led by the U.S. Geological Survey and Association of American State Geologists. The purpose is to build a national archive of maps and related data about geology, hazards, earth resources, geophysics, geochemistry, geochronology, paleontology, and marine geology.
Maps are an essential tool for conveying information about natural resources, geologic hazards, and geologic history. One important role of the New Mexico Bureau of Geology & Mineral Resources (NMBGMR) is in the production and distribution of geologic and other types of maps.
