Geochemical analysis of soils and sediments, Coeur d'Alene drainage basin, Idaho: Sampling, analytical methods, and results

Chemical composition of sediments and soils are of interest because of the potential for human and wildlife health impacts from high metal contents due to over 100 years of mining activity.

Sandstone copper assessment of the Chu-Sarysu Basin, Central Kazakhstan

This study delineated permissive areas for undiscovered sandstone copper deposits, compiled a database of known deposits and significant prospects, estimated undiscovered deposits within those areas and made probabilistic estimates of their metal content.

Geological, geophysical, and mineral resource data relevant to sandstone-hosted copper deposits in central Kazakhstan

Central Kazakhstan is host to one of the world's giant sandstone-hosted copper deposits, the Dzhezkazgan deposit, and several similar, smaller deposits (Gablina, 1981; Susura and others, 1986; Cox and others, 2003; Hitzman and others, 2005). As part of it

Basement domain map of the conterminous United States and Alaska

Seventy-seven major components of the North American continent were delineated at a general scale (1:5,000,000); including the general composition, geological environment, and types of primary metals endowments that can be expected in each domain.

Global Mineral Resource Assessment-Aggregation of estimated numbers of undiscovered deposits-an R-script with an example from the Chu Sarysu Basin, Kazakhtan

This report provides a script developed in open-source statistical software, R, that aggregates undiscovered deposit estimates of a given type assuming some degree of correlation among aggregated areas, provided a user-specified correlation matrix.

Info
Petrographic and geochemical data for Cenozoic volcanic rocks of the Bodie Hills, California and Nevada

The purpose of this report is to present available petrographic and geochemical data for unmineralized rock samples, principally volcanic rocks and to make those data available to ongoing petrogenetic investigations of these rocks.

Info
Geologic map of the Bodie Hills, California and Nevada

Spatial geologic map with rock type, vents, arcs, landslides, etc. provided in an ESRI geodatabase and KMZ format for Google Earth viewing. Mapsheet with accompanying descriptive pamphlet is provided as a PDF. Petrographic rock summary is also included.

Assessment of undiscovered copper resources associated with the Permian Kupferschiefer, Southern Permian Basin, Europe

This study delineated permissive areas for undiscovered porphyry copper deposits, compiled a database of known deposits and significant prospects, estimated undiscovered deposits within those areas and made probabilistic estimates of their metal content.

Geochronology of Cenozoic rocks in the Bodie Hills, California and Nevada

Presents data for mineral deposits and unaltered and hydrothermally altered volcanic rocks. Data presented were acquired in three USGS labs by three different geochronologists. Analytical methods and data derived from each lab are presented separately.
