Where to find federal mineral lease data?

Discussion created by math3780 on Oct 30, 2012
Hey guys,
I'm and undergraduate student and a total newbie to the forum so I'm really sorry if this is in the wrong spot or a stupid question.

I'm really struggling to find federal metallic mineral lease data anywhere online? I'm trying to map active metallic mineral leases in Northern Minnesota. I have found the state leases easily through the DNR but I cannot find active federal metallic mineral leases anywhere?

Any idea where this data would be? I assume the BLM would handle it but I could be wrong I guess.

Thanks and sorry again if this is misplaced or inappropriate or anything.
