Listing of Mineral Producers and Mineral Production Sites in Iowa
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources’ Geological Survey does not collect or publish a listing of mineral producers or mineral production sites within the State of Iowa. Listings of mineral producers and production sites may be available from two other State of Iowa departments. An out-of-date geographic information system (GIS) coverage from the year 2000 of similar information is available via the Geological Survey Bureau’s World Wide Web server.Iowa Department of Transportation Office of Materials, Instructional Memorandums (IMs) Volume IV, No. T-203, General Aggregate Source Information
