For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :51 pages
A mineral and energy appraisal of the proposed Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and certain adjoining lands was made in 1977-78 by the Bureau of Mines as part of a project to assess the value of some of the lands set aside by Public Law 93-203. The study region produced important quantities of copper, gold, silver, and oil during the first few decades of the 1900's. The most important operations at that time were the Kennecott Mines. The most promising resource sites are grouped in three general geographical areas. This summary report includes a mineral and energy potential map of the Wrangell- St. Elias region.
