Online Mineral Exploration
& Mining Claims Maps
Ethos Geological's Map.Life service combines proprietary and publicly-available information into a visible, nation-wide dataset that lets modern explorers and mining companies alike discover gold, copper, and other minerals throughout the USA. Compare mine sites and mineral showings with active lode and placer claims, geology, airborne magnetics, physical infrastructure, aerial imagery and more. Use this service to view expired claims, unstaked ground and generate opportunity at a scale never before available in the USA.
You can generate latitude/ longitude or UTM coordinates for promising prospecting sites and get an excellent satellite view of the terrain.
Our Map.Life service displays almost 15,800,000 acres of land that are listed active, and several million acres of claims that have recently expired, many of these in with significant mineral potential, all located on public lands spread across 14 states.
Easily visualize industry trends, mineral belts, and discover new opportunities:
Map.Life is a tremendously powerful exploration tool.
