Mineral Resources of the Indian Creek, Bridger Jack Mesa, and Butler Wash Wilderness Study Areas, San Juan County, Utah

Description: From abstract: The Indian Creek (UT-060-164), Bridger Jack Mesa (UT-060-167), and Butler Wash (UT-060-169) Wilderness Study Areas are located in San Juan County, southeastern Utah. Inferred subeconomic resources of sandstone and sand and gravel exist within all three wilderness study areas, but because of their abundance throughout the region, their distance from current markets, and their lack of unique properties, these materials have no current likelihood for development.

Mineral Resources of the Behind the Rocks Wilderness Study Area, Grand and San Juan Counties, Utah

Description: Abstract: The Behind the Rocks Wilderness Study Area (UT-060-140A) consists of 12,635 acres in Grand and San Juan Counties, Utah. The study area has inferred subeconomic resources of potash and halite in the subsurface, and sandstone on the surface. The study area has high potential for undiscovered resources of oil and gas, low potential for undiscovered uranium, copper, vanadium, gold, silver, other metals, and geothermal energy, and unknown potential for the rare-earth mineral, braitschite. There is no resource potential for potash or halite (beyond the previously mentioned inferred resources) or for coal.

Mineral Resources of the Parsnip Peak Wilderness Study Area, Lincoln County, Nevada

Description: From summary: The Parsnip Peak (NV-040-206) Wilderness Study Area in Lincoln County, Nevada, is 10 mi (miles) northeast of the small mining town of Pioche. A mineral resource study of the area was completed in the summers of 1984 and 1985 by the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Bureau of Mines. A small area of limestone and dolomite on the western side of the wilderness study area has high mineral resource potential for arsenic, antimony, mercury, and gold. The rest of the Parsnip Peak Wilderness Study Area has low mineral resource potential for metals, oil and gas, coal, and geothermal energy.

Description: From summary: The White Rock Range Wilderness Study Area (NV-040-202/UT-040-216) is in Lincoln County, Nevada, and Beaver and Iron Counties, Utah, along the southern Nevada-Utah state line. Ursine, the town nearest to the study area, is about 15 mi (miles) southwest of the study area; the larger town of Pioche is about 30 mi southwest of the study area on Nevada Highway 322. A joint mineral resource appraisal of the 23,625 acre wilderness study area was completed in the summers of 1984 and 1985 by the U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Bureau of Mines. The White Rock Range Wilderness Study Area has no identified mineral resources and has low mineral resource potential for metals; the potential for oil and gas, coal, and geothermal energy is also low.
