Mineral Resources Program

Maps

The Program publishes numerous mineral-related maps, including maps for mineral resource assessments, geologic map data, soil geochemical maps and hyperspectral surface materials maps. In addition to technical maps, Story Maps are used to engage the public in the interesting science that is being conducted in the Program.
