Many of the Bureau of Mines technical reports are available in digital form in the Technical Reports Archive and Image Library (TRAIL). Several of the US Bureau of Mines' programs were transferred to the U.S. Geological Survey, the Bureau of Land Management, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM), the National Mine Map Repository (NMMR), and the Department of Energy.
