Non-Coal Mineral Production Mines in Iowa, 2000

Metadata Updated: July 19, 2013

Registered noncoal mineral production sites within the State of Iowa, current to the year 2000. This shape file contains polygons representing the permitted boundaries of registered noncoal mineral production sites within the state of Iowa. Mines_2000 was developed from a database provided to the IDNR-GSB by the Mines & Minerals Bureau of the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship. The data contained in Mines_2000 are data gathered, maintained and supplied to the IDNR-GSB by the Mines and Minerals Bureau of the Iowa Department of Agriculture & Land Stewardship (IDALS). The Mines and Minerals Bureau of IDALS gathers and maintainsThis information as part of their regulatory duties related to the enforcement of the Code of Iowa Chapter 208, Mines (Chapter 83A prior to 1993), and the Iowa Administrative Code, Soil Conservation Division[27] Chapter 60, Minerals Program. The IDNR-Geological Survey Bureau usually requests annual updates ofThis data from the IDALS Mines and Minerals Bureau. The data includes information on licensed mineral producers and registered mineral production sites in the state. The polygons were created from a program(s) written by John Schmidt which reads the legal description from the IDALS database and converts it to a series of polygons which are then combined into one polygon per mineral production site. The small number of mineral production sites which lay within so called "irregular sections" were manually digitized on screen in Arcview 2.1.

Licence This digital, geographically referenced data set was developed by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to carry out agency responsibilities related to management, protection, and development of Iowa's natural resources. It resides in the Natural Resources Geographic Information System library. Although efforts have been made to make it useful to the Department, the Department assumes no responsibility for errors in the information. Similarly the Department assumes no responsibility for the consequences of inappropriate uses or interpretations of the data made by anyone to whom this data has been made available. The Department bears no responsibility to inform users of any changes made to this data. Anyone using this data is advised that precision implied by the coverage may far exceed actual precision. Comments on this data are invited and the Department would appreciate that documented errors be brought to staff attention. The development of the coverages in the NRGIS Library represents a major investment of staff time and effort. As a professional responsibility, we expect that the Iowa DNR will receive proper credit when you utilize these GIS coverages and that the original documentation will remain with any redistribution of these coverages.
