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.
