Argon geochronology data for La Garita caldera

Geochronology data to distinguish between and understand the origins of the units erupted from the La Garita caldera. Data are provided in CSV format.

Info
Automated mapping of mineral groups and green vegetation from Landsat Thematic Mapper imagery with an example from the San Juan Mountains, Colorado

Analysis of multispectral satellite imagery allows us to identify areas covered by various types of minerals and vegetation, with results provided in image files you can use in GIS.

Info
Digital map of iron sulfate minerals, other mineral groups, and vegetation of the San Juan Mountains, Colorado, and Four Corners Region derived from automated analysis of Landsat 8 satellite data

Multispectral remote sensing data acquired by the Landsat 8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) sensor were analyzed using a new, automated technique to generate a map of exposed mineral and vegetation groups in this area. Results are provided in ERDAS Imagine format.

Info
Fluorine, fluorite, and fluorspar in central Colorado

Distribution of fluorine in specific age-lithologic categories, ranging from precambrian metamorphic rocks to modern soils.

Info
Geochronology Database for Central Colorado

Compilation of isotopic and fission track age determinations, some previously published. Data for the tephrochronology of Pleistocene volcanic ash, carbon-14, Pb-alpha, common-lead, and U-Pb determinations on uranium ore minerals are not included.

Info
Global Geochemical Database for Critical Minerals in Archived Mine Samples

Chemistry and geologic information for historic ore and ore-related rock samples from mineral deposits in the United States and from archetypal deposits from 27 other countries. Data are provide in Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, and CSV formats.

Info
Hydrogeochemical investigations of historic mining districts, central western slope of Colorado, including influence on surface-water quality

Geochemical analysis of mine dumps, mill tailings, mine drainage, and surface waters indicate contamination from these historic mines is generally less than that asserted or suggested by some geochemical models

Info
Resource potential and geology of the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests and vicinity, Colorado

Multi-chapter report combining geologic, geochemical, geophysical, and mining activity data. Downloadable data for coal resource information only.

Info
Shapefiles to accompany Colorado Mineral Belt revisited

Based on detailed information on the location of the Tertiary intrusions and mineral deposits, and on the control provided by the Proterozoic structures, all superimposed using GIS, a new outline of the Colorado Mineral Belt is proposed. Older representations are included for comparison. Data are provided in shapefile format.
