Appendix 34.1 Summary of Available Data for Selected Industrial (Nonmetallic) Mineral Deposits in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin

Note: Deposits in this table are listed in alphabetical order by major commodity; and second (i.e., within commodities), sequentially in order of NTS grid number and latitude-longitude location, which results in a geographic arrangement generally from southeast to northwest. ID numbers with an asterisk (*) indicate deposits or occurrences that have not been plotted on Figure 34.5 because of overcrowding of deposit symbols.
