Q. Where can I find information on ore deposits?

Need characterizations, mining methods, reserve estimation, resources, geotechnical issues, reclamation options, etc.

Answer

Recommendations for overviews: Graton-Sales Ore Deposits of the United States; Mining Cost Estimation Service; Mineral Deposit Models, USGS Bull 1693.

Search our library catalog--you can be pretty specific on the keywords given our collection focus. Sample keywords:

  • mining handbook
  • "ore deposits" and reclamation
  • reserve estimation

GeoRef database; Geology Guide-- For the geology of specific orebodies
