Abstract

A project to assess the mineral potential of the U.S. part of the International Fall 1° x 2° quadrangle was undertaken by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in the early 1984, as part of the Conterminous United States Mineral Assessment Program (CUSMAP).  Because glacial drift covers most of the basement rocks south of the U.S.-Canada border and mineral production in this part of Minnesota has been virtually nonexistent, data from the adjacent part of Ontario has been used to understand the geologic framework and to evaluate mineral-deposit models relevant to the assessment of the U.S. part of the International Falls quadrangle.  This map and accompanying tables show the locations of mineral occurrences, prospects and mines in both Canada and the United States, and summarize their lithologic association and the characteristic metals found in them.  Locations of drill holes within the United States and completed before 1987 are also included on the map.
