Satelite View

MRDS mine locations are often very general, and in some cases are incorrect. Some mine remains have been covered or removed by modern industrial activity or by development of things like housing. The satellite view offers a quick glimpse as to whether the MRDS location corresponds to visible mine remains.

It does not definitively identify property status, nor does it indicate claim status or whether an area is open to prospecting. Always respect private property.
