User guide for the BRITPITS dataset

By D.G. Cameron


The BGS BRITPITS database contains records of mineral workings covering the whole of the\ud United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. The coverage includes both active, inactive and ceased\ud sites and also a range of mineral operations, including mines, quarries, onshore oil and gas fields,\ud together with wharfs and rail depots handling mineral products and industrial processes which\ud produce a mineral product. The coverage of the country is complete as far as active and inactive\ud sites is concerned as this information is updated yearly on behalf of the Department of\ud Communities and Local Government (DCLG) by surveying local authorities and industry\ud sources.\ud Currently (2011) BGS is conducting a systematic survey of former mineral workings using\ud historical Ordnance Survey mapping and BGS field mapping to locate ceased mineral workings
