Description: From introduction: From the time of the publication of the Leadville monograph 2 by the United States Geological Survey, in 1886, the general geology and stratigraphy of the Mosquito Range around the Leadville and Alma districts have been known. In the recent resurvey of the area, however, it has been found necessary to undertake much more detailed studies of most of the formations. In particular, the sediments of Pennsylvanian age and the overlying red beds have received considerable attention and thought. This study was necessary to determine the amount of displacement along some of the notable faults and the depth to older strata that had contained valuable ore deposits in the larger mining districts. In some places the outcrops appear to have been improperly correlated in the older reports. These were given additional study, and considerable revision of stratigraphic sections has been necessary.
