Abstract
The U.S. Bureau of Mines inventoried Federal mineral lands in Western Montana and classified them in detail, section by section, according to their availability for mineral exploration and development as affected by legal restrictions and agencies' management practices. The Bureau also identified known mineral deposit areas (KMDAs) and areas conducive to oil, gas, and geothermal resources. The information was prepared in digital format to identify extent and severity of legal and management restrictions on mineral lease or entry.
