MINFILE Detail Report (screenprints of pages 1 and 2)

The MINFILE Detail report is the most comprehensive report generated on the MINFILE database. It contains all the information on each mineral occurrence in the database.  This report often uses two or more pages for each occurrence, so it is strongly recommended that you use the search option to narrow the database before you begin generating detail reports.

 


 

Production Detail Report

The Production Detail report is a listing of annual production figures for one occurrence.

It is important to note that many of the occurrences in the MINFILE database do not have production figures. In this case, you will be unable to select the Production report or it will not be available to you.   While many MINFILE occurrences do not have production data, those that do may have several pages of it. The Production report for an occurrence which has produced three commodities for the past 31 years, for example, will have a production report of over a page in length.

Inventory Detail Report

The Inventory Detail report is a listing of reserves or resources one occurrence.

 

It is important to note that many of the occurrences in the MINFILE database do not have inventory figures.  In this case, you will be unable to select the Inventory report or it will not be available to you.   While many MINFILE occurrences do not have inventory data, those that do may have several pages of it. 

 

 

Summary Production Report

The Summary Production Detail report is a listing of annual production figures for more than one occurrence.

 

It is important to note that many of the occurrences in the MINFILE database do not have production figures. In this case, you will be unable to select the Production report or it will not be available to you.   While many MINFILE occurrences do not have production data, those that do may have several pages of it. If you request a production report for ten occurrences which have production figures for the past 50 years, you will find that a substantial number of pages is generated.  It is advisable that you preview the report or narrow the database to only a few occurrences BEFORE generating a report to conserve paper.
