Mineral Deposit Land Use Maps 1972-1981

(previous Mineral Resource Potential Maps)


Mineral Deposit Land Use maps produced between 1972 and 1977 (NTS 092H and 092I published in 1981) portray relative mineral potential and the probability of mineral discovery and exploration activity.  On these interpretive maps, terrain is subdivided into five hierarchical categories on the basis of distribution of deposits in relation to the areal geology and to the estimated mineral potential of the geological environment.  All are at a scale of 1:250 000. 


A new series of Mineral Potential Maps were released between 1992 and 1993. See also Mineral Potential Program.
