Federal Depository Library

Federal Depository Library ProgramARLIS selects federal depository items and provides free public access.

In 1982 the state and federal governments combined their mining claims records. The Mine File Fiche is an index available at the ARLIS reference desk that provides information on the claim owner, company, location, type (load or placer), mineral type, years a claim was active, and whether a claim had been proved up on. For information after 1982, contact the Bureau of Land Management regarding claims on federal land or Alaska Department of Natural Resources regarding claims on state land. Map overlays showing claim locations and other information are available in Case 5 in the Map Atrium and are used with the topographic maps in Case 6. These overlays and the associated maps are now available on the ARLIS document server as the Alaska Kardex Quadrangle Overlays collection.
