This is a spatial database that delineates mining-related features in areas of historic and active phosphate mining in the core of the southeastern Idaho phosphate resource area. The data has varying degrees of accuracy and attribution detail. The breakdown of areas by type of activity at active mines is detailed; however, the disturbed areas at many of the closed or inactive mines Cited by: 5.
