Abstract Mine locations and attributes from the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology (MBMG) Abandoned and Inactive Mines database. This data was compiled by MBMG using the U.S. Bureau of Mines MILS database as a basis.

The coordinates and legal descriptions come from sources of varying accuracy. The attributes included here are a subset of those available from the MBMG database.
Purpose Identification of mine sites, locations, and attributes compiling past data with current research results. Emphasis is on those sites that have potential environmental effects on USFS-administered land.
