Probabilistic mineral resource assessment of U.S. Territories of the Caribbean Basin and adjacent areas: Progress report

December 31, 2018

The U.S. Geological Survey is partnering with the IberoAmerican Association of Geological and Mining Surveys (ASGMI) to conduct an assessment of undiscovered metallic and non-metallic resources in the Greater Antilles region. The assessment plans to provide science-based information on the geologic availability of these resources for development, land-use planning, and decision making. The USGS anticipates contributing information generated for the Greater Antilles assessment project to the concurrent ASGMI project “Metallogenetic Map of Central America and the Caribbean”. ASGMI, in turn, anticipates contributing expertise on the metallogeny of the region to the USGS assessment project. For this purpose, the USGS plans to conduct a workshop on assessment methodology to support ASGMI’s participation in the probabilistic estimation of undiscovered deposits. Both projects stand to benefit significantly from this collaborative effort.
