Summary
Abstract: This data set was compiled due to interest in Afghanistan and anticipated
continuing interest as post-war aid and reconstruction begin.

This data set contains latitudes, longitudes, commodity, and limited geologic
data for metallic and nonmetallic mines, deposits, and mineral occurrences of
Afghanistan. The data in this compilation were derived from published
literature and data files of members of the USGS National Industrial Minerals
project. This data set consists of one table with 17 fields and over 1000
sites.

This data set consists of one Excel 98 spreadsheet file, OF02110.xls. Data
fields include location, deposit, commodity, and geologic data for mineral
deposits, mines and occurrences.
