Abstract The objectives of the VCMD investigation were to (1) evaluate the mineral resoures of the VCMD, (2) perform theoretical mining feasibility studies, (3) study the application of modern beneficiation technologies on known deposits, and (4) perform a probabilistic mineral resource and economic assessment of the mining district. This document (1) discusses pertinent recent and historical information about the VCMD, (2) summaries the findings of Bureau work that has been performed in the VCMD to date, and (3) can be used as a principal reference to information on government geological research and mineral resource evaluation in the VCMD.
