Geological and Pb-isotope data for New England volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits

This dataset accompanies publication “Lead isotopes in New England (USA) volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits: implications for metal sources and pre-accretionary tectonostratigraphic terranes”, published in Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences (see 'Related External Resources' section below). The data encompass Pb-isotope analyses of sulfide mineral separates, mainly galena, as well as whole-sulfi

Stable isotope data for sulfur, oxygen, and hydrogen in minerals and gases and electron microprobe data for minerals from Sulphur Bank mercury mine, Lake County, California

Stable isotope compositions (the ratios deuterium/hydrogen, oxygen-18/oxygen-16, and sulfur-34/sulfur-32) are reported for alunite, jarosite, kaolinite, silica, cinnabar, marcasite, and native sulfur from outcrops in and around the workings of the Sulphur Bank mercury mine, Lake County, California, and chemical compositions are reported, from electron microprobe analyses, for alunite and buddingto

Ruby Mountains and East Humboldt Range, Nevada: U-Pb zircon age and trace element data and whole-rock Pb, Sr, and Nd isotopic data

This dataset accompanies planned publication 'Paleogene mid-crustal intrusions in the Ruby Mountains Metamorphic Core Complex, northeastern Nevada' [IP-153033], to be published in Geosphere, as well as planned future publications in this region. The data encompass U-Pb zircon age and trace element data and whole-rock Pb, Sr, and Nd isotopic data from igneous and metamorphic rocks throughout the Ru

Airborne magnetic and radiometric survey, South Pass-Granite Mountains region, Wyoming, 2023

This data release provides digital flight line data for a high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey over the South Pass-Granite Mountains region in central Wyoming. The airborne survey was funded by the state of Wyoming, designed by the Wyoming State Geological Survey (WSGS), and contracted by the USGS. The survey is aligned with the Earth Mapping Resources Initiative and was design

Database of mineral deposits related to the Mesoproterozoic Midcontinent Rift System (MRS) in the northern United States and northern Ontario, Canada

The Midcontinent Rift System (MRS) of North America is one of the world’s largest continental rifts and has an age of 1.1 Ga (giga-annum). The MRS hosts a diverse suite of magmatic and hydrothermal mineral deposits in the Lake Superior region where rift rocks are exposed at or near the surface. As part of the construction of a database summarizing information on mineral deposits in the MRS, data f

Alaska Geochemical Database Version 4.0 (AGDB4) including best value data compilations for rock, sediment, soil, mineral, and concentrate sample media

The Alaska Geochemical Database Version 4.0 (AGDB4) contains geochemical data compilations in which each geologic material sample has one best value determination for each analyzed species, greatly improving efficiency of use. The relational database includes historical geochemical data archived in the USGS National Geochemical Database (NGDB), the Atomic Energy Commission National Uranium Resourc

GIS Data for Reconnaissance Geologic Map of the Hells Canyon Study Area, Wallowa County, Oregon, and Idaho and Adams Counties, Idaho

This data release for the reconnaissance geologic map of the Hells Canyon Study Area, Wallowa County, Oregon, and Idaho and Adams Counties, Idaho, is a Geologic Map Schema (GeMS, 2020)-compliant version of the geologic map published in U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Scientific Investigations Report Map SIR 2007-5046 (Simmons, et al, 2007).            The database represents the geology for the 625,

National scale assessment for rare earth elements in dissolved water samples and supporting geochemistry

This dataset is in support of the publication "The addition of 144Nd to routine ICP-MS analysis as a quick screening tool for approximating earth elements (Q-STAR) in natural waters". It contains inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) data from samples analyzed at the National Water Quality Laboratory (NWQL) from April 2021-May 2022. Data listed include estimated neodymium (Nd) conc

Gravity data in the Wet Mountains area, southcentral Colorado, 2023

The U.S. Geological Survey collected ground gravity data as part of a helicopter reconnaissance campaign of the Democrat Creek alkaline complex and Deer Peak quadrangle in the Wet Mountains, Colorado. A total of 60 measurements were collected using a LaCoste and Romberg gravity meter. High accuracy geographic coordinates and elevations were collected using a survey grade Leica GS16 differential GP

U-Pb Dataset from late Paleozoic record of the Eastern Shelf of the Permian Basin

This dataset accompanies planned publication titled "The Far-Field imprint of the LPIA, its demise, and the onset of a dust-house climate across the Eastern Shelf of the Permian Basin". Zircon ages presented in this dataset are from rocks collected across the eastern margin of the Permian Basin, Texas. The U-Pb zircon ages are used to investigate changes in provenance in this region as a result of

Geochemical analyses of rock samples collected from the Judith Mountains and Crazy Mountains alkalic complexes, Montana

Geochemical data include major, minor and trace element results for 42 alkaline silicate igneous rock samples. Samples were collected from natural exposures/outcrops during field work in the Central Montana Alkaline Province (CMAP) during the summer of 2022. All samples were analyzed by the U.S. Geological Survey contract laboratory, SGS Labs. Major, minor, and trace elements were determined via w

Training and validation data from the AI for Critical Mineral Assessment Competition

Extracting useful and accurate information from scanned geologic and other earth science maps is a time-consuming and laborious process involving manual human effort. To address this limitation, the USGS partnered with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to run the AI for Critical Mineral Assessment Competition, soliciting innovative solutions for automatically georeferencing and
