  ANCHORAGE, Alaska – A new digital geologic map of Alaska is being released today providing land users, managers and scientists geologic information for the evaluation of land use in relation to resource extraction, conservation, natural hazards and recreation. The map gives visual context to the abundant mineral and energy resources found throughout the state in a beautifully.   From introduction: This bibliography is an annotated list of selected reports that were publicly available as of , pertaining to the uranium content and/or radioactivity of igneous and metamorphic rocks and minerals in the United : Diane Curtis.
