Alaska Mineral Resources
The Minerals Outreach project is designed to facilitate the communication of minerals-related information to USGS cooperators, customers, and the general public through presentations, publications, and the World Wide Web. As part of the USGS mission to provide the Nation with reliable scientific information, the project strives to increase and improve the use of Mineral Resources Program-generated work. Targeted customers include policy makers and general audiences, in addition to the scientific and technical sectors. Following bureau, mission area, regional, and program guidelines, Alaska coordinates its efforts with fellow Minerals Outreach team members in the Eastern, Central, and Western regions through a collaborative advisory process.
Data on minerals and mineral products are critical for decision makers and regulators in formulating public policy for land stewardship, sustainable use, environmental impact, public health, and economic development. Expected outcomes include:
|Mineral Resources||Eastern / Central / Western / Alaska / Minerals Information|
|Crustal Geophysics & Geochemistry / Spatial Data|
