Geologic Datasets for Weights-of-Evidence Analysis in Northeast Washington--3. Minerals-Related Permits on National Forests, 1967 to 1998Entry ID: USGS_OFR_99_414
Abstract: This dataset was developed to provide mineral resource data for
the region of northeast WA for use in future spatial analysis by a
variety of users.
This database is not meant to be used or displayed at any scale
larger than 1:24,000.
Permits to explore for and (or) develop mineral resources on
Federal lands can be used to indicate locations and types of
mineral-related activities on national ... forests. Permits for these
activities require filing of a Notice of Intent to conduct mineral
exploration activities and (or) a Plan of Operation, if
significant land disturbance results. This compilation of notices
and plans for the Colville, Kaniksu, Okanogan, and Wenatchee
national forests between 1967 and 1998 is intended for use in
combination with geologic and economic information to predict
future mineral-related activities in the region.
This dataset consists of one Excel 97 spreadsheet file
(of99-414.xls) which contains information about permits on
national forest lands in northeast Washington State.
