This project was part of a national effort to develop national digital datasets categorized in four major themes: geology, mineral deposits, geochemistry, and geophysics, and to integrate, analyze, and interpret these data in order to assess mineral resources, determine regional background values for chemical elements with known environmental impact, characterize regional mineral districts, define metallogenic provinces, and study the relationship between toxic commodities or mining practices and human health. These interpretive studies involved contributions from a wide variety of disciplines and partners.
