The USGS Mineral Resources Program (MRP) delivers unbiased science and information to increase understanding of mineral resource potential, production, and consumption, and how mineral resources interact with the environment.

The MRP is the Federal Government’s sole source for this mineral resource science and information. Across the USGS, research is underway to define and prioritize focus areas throughout the United States with resource potential for these 35 critical minerals.

The Global Marine Mineral Resources project specifically informs the marine component. To date, there is no mining of deep-sea minerals. The Geophysical Analysis of Energy Resources Project (also called the Geophysical Analysis Project) meets the need within the USGS and the Energy Resources Program to conduct advanced theoretical and applied research in reflection seismology to improve the delineation and characterization of both conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon.

Sixteen proposals were submitted to the Mineral Resources External Research Program (MRERP) that met the goals of the MRP. The proposals were reviewed by a panel of 6 research scientists (5 from USGS and 1 external to the USGS) and the MRP is pleased to announce that it supported the following six proposals, listed in alphabetical order by.

The USGS Mineral Resources Program conducts mineral resource assessments and is training USGS scientists in how to conduct these assessments for future work.

As a practical exercise, the scientists will conduct an assessment for tungsten in the U.S. Geologic, geophysical, and geochemical studies are used to evaluate the mineral endowment of strategic and critical minerals in selected regions of the United States.

Understanding the formation of major mineral deposits, which provide for society’s needed resources, can have broad impact on the economy and the environment. Demand for critical mineral commodities is on the rise with increasing applications in consumer products such as phones and tablets.

Research and assessment activities address the need for more up-to-date information on the nation's and the world's critical mineral resources.
