Published since the 1870's this report contains production statistics, mine names, locations, owner information, and accident statistics. Prior to the mid-1880's the reports for anthracite and bituminous coal were produced by separate agencies, therefore early reports for bituminous coal are available as part III "Industrial Statistics" of the Annual Report of the Bureau of Statistics of Pennsylvania, later the Annual Report of the Secretary of Internal Affairs of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Industrial minerals were included in these reports beginning with 1973.

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) maintains the Mine Data Retrieval System database of information on both active and inactive mines for the United States. The database is searchable by location, mine name, mine operator, commodity, and other parameters.
The USGS also reports state-level data as part of their Minerals Information service, some of which is provided in Excel format. Also useful is a simply map showing the location of commodity mining by county.
