Description

From abstract: The manganese deposits of the Artillery Mountains region lie within an area of about 25 square miles between the Artillery and Rawhide Mountains, on the west side of the Bill Williams River in west-central Arizona. The richest croppings are on the northeast side of this area, among the foothills of the Artillery Mountains. They are 6 to 10 miles from Alamo. The nearest shipping points are Congress, about 50 miles to the east, and Aguila, about 50 miles to the southeast. The principal manganese deposits are part of a sequence of alluvial fan and playa material, probably of ... continued below

Description

From abstract: The manganese deposits of the Artillery Mountains region lie within an area of about 25 square miles between the Artillery and Rawhide Mountains, on the west side of the Bill Williams River in west-central Arizona. The richest croppings are on the northeast side of this area, among the foothills of the Artillery Mountains. They are 6 to 10 miles from Alamo. The nearest shipping points are Congress, about 50 miles to the east, and Aguila, about 50 miles to the southeast.
The principal manganese deposits are part of a sequence of alluvial fan and playa material, probably of early Pliocene age,
which were laid down in a fault basin. They are overlain by later Pliocene (?) basalt flows and sediments and by Quaternary
basalt and alluvium. The Pliocene (?) rocks are folded into a shallow composite syncline that occupies the valley between the
Artillery and Rawhide Mountains, and the folded rocks along either side of the valley, together with the overlying Quaternary
basalt, are broken by faults that have produced a group of horsts, grabens, and step-fault blocks.
