Description

Abstract: The Fish Springs Range Wilderness Study Area (UT-050-127) includes most of the Fish Springs Range and is located north of the House Range, about 50 miles northwest of the city of Delta, Utah. A mineral resource study of the 33,840-acre area was completed in 1987 by the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Bureau of Mines. The northwestern and southeastern parts of the wilderness study area contain inferred subeconomic resources of high-purity quartzite. No metallic mineral resources were identified in the study area, but more than 17 million pounds of lead, 2.6 million ounces of silver, and minor copper, zinc, … continued below

Description

Abstract: The Fish Springs Range Wilderness Study Area (UT-050-127) includes most of the Fish Springs Range and
is located north of the House Range, about 50 miles northwest of the city of Delta, Utah. A mineral resource study
of the 33,840-acre area was completed in 1987 by the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Bureau of Mines. The northwestern
and southeastern parts of the wilderness study area contain inferred subeconomic resources of high-purity quartzite. No metallic mineral resources were identified in the study area, but more than 17 million pounds of lead, 2.6 million ounces of silver, and minor copper, zinc, and gold have been produced from the Fish Springs mining district, which is immediately outside the northwest boundary of the wilderness study area. The potential for undiscovered deposits of these metals and molybdenum is high near the northern end of the study area, adjacent to the mining district, moderate near the southern end, and low in the remainder of the area. The resource potential for undiscovered deposits of high-purity limestone and dolomite is moderate throughout the study area except where quartzite is present; potential for undiscovered low-temperature geothermal resources and for oil and gas is low throughout the study area.
