Principal facts of gravity data collected in and around the eastern Adirondack highlands, northern New York

July 27, 2020

Gravity data were collected in 2016 and 2017 to assist in mapping subsurface geology in and around the eastern Adirondack highlands, northern New York, which host numerous iron-oxide apatite deposits. Many of these deposits contain rare-earth elements, which are considered a critical mineral resource. This data release provides principal facts for 189 new gravity stations that were acquired to fill in gaps in the existing public gravity data coverage.
