Mineral Lick

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"

Abstract:

This data set can be used to identify a mineral lick, which is an area of mud pools or puddles, fed by slow seeping springs, and used by wildlife. Mineral licks occur in areas of both sedimentary and volcanic bedrock. They occur rarely in granitic bedrock except where overlain by calcareous glacial till. Well established mineral licks typically appear as open muddy areas and are usually characterised by well worn trails radiating from them.
