Calico Grassy Mountain Project


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-di​mension 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.
