For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :16 pages
Map compilations of land availability for mineral exploration and development in southeastern Alaska are based on the distribution and types of land status and areal relationship to mineral terranes and mineral deposits. Five categories of land availability were identified: open, open with possible use restrictions, selected, patented, and closed land. Compilation results of five land availability categories are presented at a scale of 1:250,000. The mineral deposits, a total of 1,187 as compiled by the Bureau of Mines minerals availability system, are located on the maps for reference purposes. A tabulation of the names and principal commodities for each deposit is included adjoining each map. The maps include the following quadrangles: Atlin, Bradfield Canal, Craig, Dixon Entrance, Juneau, Ketchikan, Mount Fairweather, Mount St. Elias, Petersburg, Port Alexander, Prince Rupert, Sitka, Skagway, Sumdum, Taku, and Yakutat.
