USBM Mineral Land Assessment Publications

The Mineral Land Assessment program was designed to provide reliable and comprehensive mineral resource information that supports mineral resource policy and land use decisions made by Congress and Federal land management agencies. The information also provides the basis for decisions that would expand the domestic supply of important mineral resources, primarily strategic and critical minerals. Much of the MLA work was done jointly with cooperating State or U.S. geological surveys. Site specific mineral investigations included programs directed toward the identification of critical and strategic minerals throughout Alaska.
