This dataset is a compilation of metallic mineral occurrences of economic interest that have been found in Alberta either by government or industry exploration. The dataset comprises a diverse suite of metals including precious metals, base metals, uranium and iron. The occurrences are classified based on commodity and development stage and status into producers, past producers, projects with resource estimate, prospects, showings, and anomalies.
This dataset is part of a package of datasets produced to support the creation of AGS Map 590, Minerals of Alberta. The package includes datasets of Prospective Areas for Mineral Exploration (DIG 2019-0025), Industrial Mineral Occurrences of Alberta (DIG 2019-0027), Kimberlite and Ultrabasic Intrusions of Alberta (DIG 2019-0028), Lithium Content in Groundwater and Formation Water in Alberta (DIG 2019-0029), references (txt), and a description of the methodology (Map 590 Information Document).
