The USGS serves the Nation by providing reliable scientific information to describe and understand the Earth; minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters; manage water, biological, energy, and mineral resources; and enhance and protect our quality of life.
All States provided estimates for public supply, domestic, irrigation, livestock, aquaculture, industrial,mining, and thermoelectric power water use. All States also provided estimates of public supply deliveries for domestic use.All States will have estimates of the total population served by public supply. States optionally may have estimated public supply population served by groundwater and surface water.All States will have estimates of total irrigation. States optionally may have estimated subtotals for crop irrigation and golf-course irrigation.No consumptive-use data were collected nationally for any of the categories for 2010.No commercial water-use data were collected nationally for 2010.No wastewater release data were collected nationally for 2010.No hydroelectric power instream use data were collected nationally for 2010.Public-supply deliveries for commercial, industrial, and thermoelectric power were not collected nationally for 2010.
The USGS Mineral Resources Program (MRP) provides scientific information for objective resource assessments and unbiased research results on mineral potential, production, consumption, and environmental effects. The MRP is the sole Federal source for this information.
This map displays over 1,500 mineral facilities in Africa and the Middle East. The mineral facilities include mines, plants, mills, or refineries of aluminum, cement, coal, copper, diamond, gold, iron and steel, nickel, platinum-group metals, salt, and silver, among others. The data used in this poster were compiled from multiple sources, including the 2004 USGS Minerals Yearbook (Africa and Middle East volume), Minerals Statistics and Information from the USGS Web site, and data collected by USGS minerals information country specialists. Data reflect the most recent published table of industry structure for each country. Other sources include statistical publications of individual countries, annual reports and press releases of operating companies, and trade journals. Due to the sensitivity of some energy commodity data, the quality of these data should be evaluated on a country-by-country basis. Additional information and explanation is available from the country specialists. See Table 1 for general information about each mineral facility site including country, location and facility name, facility type, latitude, longitude, mineral commodity, mining method, main operating company, status, capacity, and units.
MRDS is a collection of reports describing metallic and nonmetallic mineral resources throughout the world. Included are deposit name, location, commodity, deposit description, geologic characteristics, production, reserves, resources, and references. It subsumes the original MRDS and MAS/MILS.
