Idaho Geological Survey makes progress on mining documents

Over 10,000 unique and unpublished mine-related documents are being made available for free download through the Idaho Geological Survey’s mines interactive web map application. Reed Lewis, an IGS geologist pictured here, leads the effort to preserve these documents and make them widely available to the public through the mines app. The effort to process and scan the IGS collection is funded in part by Idaho Department of Lands and the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program. About half of the existing collection is now available online with new scans added frequently.
