USGS Releases Mineral Resource Assessment Report

The U.S. Geological Survey has released Chapter A of its mineral resource assessment report on the sage brush focal areas in NV, ID, OR, WY,  UT and MT. The assessment was done at the request of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to evaluate the mineral-resource potential of some 10 million acres of Federal and adjacent lands in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming. The need for this assessment arose from the decision by the Secretary of the Interior to pursue the protection of large tracts of contiguous habitat for the greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) in the Western United States. Sage-grouse has been one of the issues that WMC has been addressing during our Fly-Ins to Washington DC for the last several years. The report.

Your connection to people, information, and resources in the U. S. Mining Industry

We provide members of Congress and other policy makers with facts about the modern mining industry, and the importance of mining to the U.S. economy and our daily lives. WMC members document the industry's commitment to resource stewardship and environmentally responsible mining.

A strong mining industry is vitally important to America. WMC members deliver the message that jobs all across the country depend on mining, and that today's regulations and modern technology ensure state-of-the-art environmental protection at U.S. mines. WMC members provide policy makers with first-hand information about the technological advancements and environmental stewardship of today's mining industry.
