Locations and summary of types of data available by borehole or other underground openings, Mercury Core Library and Data Center, Nye County, Nevada

Metadata Updated: July 28, 2022

This geospatial data set represents about 2,500 locations of boreholes, shafts, tunnels, and drifts on and around the Nevada Test Site (NTS) where rock-samples have been collected. Information from the rock-samples is summarized for each hole and includes lithologic descriptions, physical and mechanical properties, fracture characteristics, and hydraulic properties where holes were completed below the water table. The digital data are accessed from the webpage for the NTS U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Core Library and Data Center, Mercury, Nevada. Links to additional information, such as water-level data from the National Water Inventory System (NWIS), and USGS borehole graphical information are included for some holes.
