According to a statement posted on the bureau’s Web site, the MGB’s Lands Geological Survey Division attended a five-day workshop in February aimed to establish baseline geologic data and to discuss the methods needed to complete the geologic mapping exercise.

“The output will be… geologic maps which are expected to be extremely useful for many practical applications such as in mineral exploration, groundwater resource and vulnerability assessment, solid waste disposal site selection, land use planning, and other applications,” read the MGB statement.

A total of 98 map sheets at 1:50,000 scale are the target outputs for the bureau’s 2017 Geologic Quadrangle Mapping Project.

Quadrangle geologic maps are comprehensive geologic maps recording details on areas essential for good land use planning and resolving geologic problems.
