Label Statistics Description
dep_type
points
Show statistics for this fieldGeneralized mineral-deposit type in which a critical mineral or commodity occurs. A classification used for a mineral deposit based on genetic and physical characteristics such as how the deposit formed, inherent value (tonnage and grade), mining and beneficiation methods that can be used to develop a deposit, and the remediation that must be done to minimize environmental impacts of mining. Many critical minerals may be produced as coproducts or byproducts from mineral deposits, thus some deposit types are listed because they could contain critical minerals. If the deposit type was unknown, the value was listed as Deposit type unclassified.
