Here we present existing data for mines, deposits and mineral indexes.
Sources of information:
1- Provincial Organizations of Industries and Mines
2- Prepared reports by GSI on prospecting and exploration (geophysical, geochemical, remote sensed and …) of minerals
3- Msc and doctorate theses.
4- Geological maps and their reports
5- Local governmental organizations
First aims for data gathering started in March 2000.
Mine: a district, which one (or more) mineral commodity is (ore was) extracting from it.
Deposit: a district, which is under detailed exploration for future mining.
Mineral Index: a district, which it has been cited for mineral potential without assessment of its economic acceptance.
Also in this database, there are these accommodations:
1- District which has license for exploration= mineral index
2- District which has certification for performed primary exploration= deposit
3- District which has license for exploitation= mine
