BLM - Colorado Active Mining Claim Density

Creator(s):
Publisher:
U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
Description:
This data set illustrates the density of the active mining claim records extracted from BLM’s LR2000 database and should only be used with that data set. Mining claim shapefiles are created by matching LR2000 land descriptions against the smallest feature possible in the GIS representation of the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) https://navigator.blm.gov/data?keyword=plss&fs_publicRegion=Colorado. When a direct match is found, the corresponding polygon in PLSS is used as a template to create a new feature in the output shapefile. The new feature is not a representation of the mining claim boundaries. Multiple mining claims may be located within the same area and is depicted by this associated density dataset.
