How can I find U.S. Bureau of Mines publications?
(from USGS website)

"After 85 years of service, the U.S. Bureau of Mines (USBM) closed in 1996. Certain functions, such as the collection, analysis, and dissemination of minerals information, have been returned to the U.S. Geological Survey. For information on former USBM programs or publications, please see the following sources:

The National Technical Reports Library (part of the National Technical information Service) has a "legacy" collection of USBM publications dating from 1910-1996. These publications represent most of the research work done by the USBM in the fields of mining technology, mine safety and health, and the mineral industry.

The Minerals Information Program was transferred to U.S. Geological Survey, now a part of our Mineral Resources Program. Send an email to minerals@usgs.gov

https://www.usgs.gov/energy-and-minerals/mineral-r...

Interlibrary loan - get assistance from a reference librarian at a public or private library.

USGS information about mines is on our Mineral Resources Online Spatial Data website."
