Today I’m posting a 1997 bibliography from the US Bureau of Mines that lists all of the reports, maps, and surveys that the BM had on Alaska mining. I guess this is about the time that the Bureau of Mines was being shut down by Bill Clinton and most of the functions merged into the BLM.
I’m not sure if that was the last big government agency to be shutdown, but I can’t think of any other since then.
It’s not easy reading, but it’s a great research document.
So, take a look at the list-of-blm-docs-on-alaska-mining
