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.
