Important note: On December 11, 2018 Google announced that its Fusion Table product, which this utility is built on, will be phased out by August 2019. We will attempt to support the Mines Explorer until that time but it will not be available after that date.
The Mines Explorer is now available for premium Mines level members. The Mines Explorer allows all mines in the western United States to be searched in a visual map-based format. Mines can be filtered by state, county, mine name, commodity, land status, holdings, significance, and deposit size.
