Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
CANMINDEX is a legacy database which was established in the 1970s by the Economic Geology Subdivision of the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC). It contains index-level data about Canadian mineral occurrences, and was originally intended as the authoritative source to serve all of Canada. However, provinces began to build their own mineral occurrence databases independently. CANMINDEX then became an internal resource for GSC researchers, and was used as a source for many of the occurrence points on geological maps and listings in many GSC publications. The primary use of the database at present would to verify the sources of the data from legacy publications, and to cross-check content with that of other databases.
