DNR Report 313: 1993; Compendium of Mineral Information, East-Central Minnesota

Purpose extracted from page 1 of Report 313:

PURPOSE The administration of state-owned lands includes the management of those lands for mineral resources. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Minerals Division administers state-owned mineral rights for the benefit of schools, the university, local units of government and the public. As a part of this responsibility, the Minerals Division has maintained mineral resource records and information. This compendium of minerals information for east-central Minnesota is provided by the Minerals Division for all people who work in the field of land management, both within various levels of government and outside government. It is intended to serve as a guide to available information, by providing maps showing the location of known mineral resources and the geographic extent of information sources, and listing a knowledgeable contact person for each theme. Further, it is intended to document the presence of some known subeconomic mineral resources, which may have a higher value in the future, and therefore should be considered in current planning. It does not contain a map of speculative resource locations for all commodities, because that would require a complex evaluation and presentation. This compendium is intended to be a starting point for all who need or want access to mineral resource information in east-central Minnesota.
