Montana aeromagnetic and gravity maps and data

Aeromagnetic surveys of Montana, merged to form seamless grids across the state. Gravity anomaly data are provided as well.

Aeromagnetic map for the state of Idaho

Aeromagnetic surveys of Idaho, merged to form seamless grids across the state. Data provided in a variety of formats.

Geophysical, geochemical, mineralogical, and enivronmental data for rock samples collected in a mineralized volcanic environment, upper Animas River watershed, Colorado

Data for 90 rock samples collected from 2001 to 2007 for geophysical, geochemical, mineralogical, and environmental rock properties of acid neutralizing capacity and net acid production.

Magnetic and gravity gradiometry framework for Mesoproterozoic iron oxide-apatite and iron oxide-copper-gold deposits, southeast Missouri, USA

High-resolution airborne magnetic and gravity gradiometry data provide the geophysical framework for evaluating the exploration potential of hidden iron oxide deposits in Mesoproterozoic basement rocks of southeast Missouri. The data are used to calculate

Net acid production, acid neutralizing capacity, and associated geophysical, mineralogical, and geochemical characteristics of Animas River watershed rocks near Silverton, Colorado

Geochemical analysis of rock samples focusing on characteristics relevant to mine cleanup discussions

Washington aeromagnetic maps and data:

Aeromagnetic surveys of Washington state, merged to form seamless grids across the state. Gravity anomaly data are provided as well.

Reconnaissance geologic map of the Duncan Canal/Zarembo Island area, southeastern Alaska

Updated bedrock geologic mapping of the area incorporating a recent airborne geophysical survey, new field work, fossils, radiometric ages, and geochemical signatures. Includes GIS data.

Mapping the mineral resource base for mineral carbon-dioxide sequestration in the conterminous United States

Map includes GIS data for magnesium-rich ultramafic rocks

A deposit model for carbonatite and peralkaline intrusion-related rare earth element deposits

Carbonatite and alkaline intrusive complexes, as well as their weathering products, are the primary sources of rare earth elements. A wide variety of other commodities have been exploited from carbonatites and alkaline igneous rocks including

Focus areas for data acquisition for potential domestic resources of 11 critical minerals in the conterminous United States, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico—Aluminum, cobalt, graphite, lithium, niobium, platinum-group elements, rare earth elements, tantalum, titanium, and tungsten

Geographic areas within the US where deposits of certain critical mineral resources might be found. With state agencies and other organizations, USGS intends to conduct studies that will help locate critical mineral resources within these areas.

GIS and data tables for focus areas for potential domestic nonfuel sources of rare earth elements

Locations of focus areas to be used for planning and collection of geophysical, geological, and topographic (lidar) data pertaining to the study of rare earth element resources in the US.
