The U.S. Forest Service is working to integrate geoscience information into land-use planning processes. To help achieve this goal, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Mineral Resource Program scientists are providing a wealth of information, including geologic maps, databases (geology, mineral locality, geochemical, and geophysical), and mineral assessments for the Northern Rocky Mountains of Idaho, Montana, and Washington. This area is known for its world-class deposits of gold, copper, silver, platinum, garnet, and talc and has been the site of a variety of mineral resource assessment studies by the USGS.
