Oregon historical mining information available online 
Historical mine and commodities records, formerly available to the public at DOGAMI Portland and Grants Pass office reference libraries, are now available as PDF files in the Oregon Historical Mining Information (OHMI) archive. The first part of this ongoing project includes small-dimension maps, letters, news clippings, photographs, and reports. The agency plans to combine OHMI records with the GIS-based Mineral Information Layer for Oregon (MILO).

MILO-2 is a geospatial database that stores and manages information regarding Oregon's mineral occurrences, prospects, and mines. A subset of the data is shown on the interactive map; order the full data set from nature of the Northwest.
