The KGS Minerals Group conducts research on mineral deposits and bulk mineral commodities, and maintains important databases of mineral and chemical information for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. An important map that is used in this Web site is the Mineral and Fuel Resources Map of Kentucky. All of the minerals discussed in the Industrial Minerals Web site can be located on this map. In the near future, KGS will have a Minerals Internet Map Service, whereby detailed information about the minerals of the state can be located online and accessed via computer.
