World Mineral Resources

The Mineral Resources Data System was compiled by the USGS and describes metallic and nonmetallic mineral resources throughout the world. Included are deposit name, location, commodity, deposit description, geologic characteristics, production, reserves, resources, and references for each location. The dataset includes information on over 300,000 locations throughout the Earth.

These are large files and may take a minute or two to load. Do not try to view more than one region/state at a time.
