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.

Info
Geochemical data generated by projects funded by the USGS Earth Mapping Resources Initiative

Includes all geochemical data generated by each project partnership funded through Earth MRI and will be updated periodically as additional geochemical data from these projects becomes available.

Info
Impact of mine and natural sources of mercury on water, sediment, and biota in Harley Gulch adjacent to the Abbott-Turkey Run mine, Lake County, California

Detailed samples around these abandoned mines will help to determine how well site remediation efforts have worked to reduce the dangerous levels of mercury that come from both natural sources here as well as the abandoned mines.

Info
Surface mineral maps of Afghanistan derived from HyMap imaging spectrometer data, version 2

The report presents new maps from data collected in 2007 and the processing steps applied to that data. The maps are being used for natural resource development and to prioritize study areas of mineral distribution to assist with economic revitalization.
