USA Mining: A Living Tradition of the American People
Mining in the United States has been active since early colonial times, but became a major industry in the 19th century, with a series of new mineral discoveries that led to a series of booms in mining activity.
Today, the United States has 3,921,409 mining grant records on public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management and 134,153 mine records cataloged by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
Of these, the state of Nevada has the largest number of active mining concessions (231,922) and ranks second among states with the largest number of mines (11,885), just behind California, which has 25,673 (based on public lands listed in The Diggings™).
The top commodities most frequently appearing in U.S. mines are gold, silver and copper.
