Geology of the Murray Area, Shoshone County, Idaho

Description: Abstract: The Murray area includes almost the whole drainage basins of Prichard, Eagle, and Beaver Creeks and is underlain by the pre-Cambrian Belt series which is subdivided, from oldest to youngest, as follows: Prichard formation (upper and lower parts), Burke formation, Revett quartzite, St. Regis formation, Wallace formation, and Striped Peak formation. The Belt series in this area is cut by many small monzonite stocks believed to be related to the Cretaceous Idaho batholith. This report describes only the lead-zinc mines. The lead-zinc production around Murray reached its peak in 1911 and 1912 when the Monarch, Edith Murray (Pontiac or Terrible Edith), Bear Top, Paragon, Black Horse, and Silver Strike mines were active. Many of these mines have produced ore intermittently since then, and the Jack Waite mine has been very active since about 1930.
