The U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Bureau of Mines opened their Mineral Information Office June 21 in Washington, D.C. The new office joins the Survey's recently renovated Earth Science Information Center in the Department of Interior building.

The Mineral Information Office offers computer and video disc access to the geologic, geophysical, hydrologic, and cartographic information of both agencies, including the 127,000 items in the Survey's library and current statistics compiled by the Bureau of Mines on worldwide mineral production and use of more than 100 commodities. The staff has mineral experts to help customers.
