Title: BLM REA MAR 2012 Active mines and mineral plants in the US (USGS National Minerals Information Center) - MAR
Originator: USGS

Publication Date: Unknown
Description:
Abstract: This data set includes mineral and metal operations in the United States. The data represent commodities monitored by the National Minerals Information Center of the USGS, and the operations included are those considered active in 2003 and surveyed by the MIT. These data were reprojected to USA_Contiguous_Albers_Equal_Area_Conic_USGS_version and clipped to the MAR REA boundary.
Purpose: The digital data set of the National Minerals Information Center is used to create electronic and hard copy maps that depict various mineral or metal mine and/or processing locations on a national map. The data can be used to conduct graphic analysis on national and large regional scales.
Supplemental Information: Additional mineral and metal operations information can be obtained from the U.S. Geological Survey National Minerals Information Center web page at: http://minerals.usgs.gov/minerals/

Source Used Citation Abbreviation: AMIS
Process Description: AMIS contains both proprietary and nonproprietary information. For each commodity, the National Minerals Information Center extracted from AMIS the nonproprietary information useful for this application and placed this information in a separate database. This information includes company name, site name, county, state, and coordinates. This information is reported by the company with the exception of coordinates, which have been added by the MIT in an ongoing process that began in 1997. Latitude and longitude for each operation was obtained from at least one of the following sources: Minerals Availability System/Minerals Industry Location System (MAS/MILS) CD-ROM, U.S. Bureau of Mines Special Publication 12-95, web searches using general internet search services (queries by company name or name of the specific operation), company contact, map interpolation, and searches of the EPA database at http://www.epa.gov/enviro.html/multisystem_query_java.html Whenever possible the location information was checked for accuracy and added to the AMIS database. After 2003 coordinates being added were checked, or obtained, when possible using USGS air photos available through Microsoft Terraserver (http://terraserver-usa.com).
Process Date: 2005
Process Step:
Source Used Citation Abbreviation: Minerals Yearbook 2003
Process Description: Records extracted from AMIS were compared to information available in the National Minerals Information Center's 2003 Minerals Yearbook and were reviewed by commodity specialists to create the 2003 Active Mines and Plants dataset.
