Mineral Resources of the Deep Creek Mountains Wilderness Study Area, Juab and Tooele Counties, Utah

Description: From abstract: The Deep Creek Mountains Wilderness Study Area (UT-020-060/UT-050-020) includes most of the Deep Creek Range of west-central Utah. The area is near the Utah-Nevada State line, south of Wendover, Utah, and northwest of Delta, Utah. Eleven areas of mineralized rock in and near the study area were evaluated by the U.S. Bureau of Mines. Four of these areas contain identified resources: (1) an indicated resource of 5,000 short tons of 16.5 ounces silver per short ton, 4.1 percent lead, 4.6 percent zinc, and 0.25 percent copper, at the Willow Springs area, which is almost surrounded by the study area in the northeast corner although it is not part of the study area; (2) an indicated gold resource of 774,000 short tons of 0.4 ounces per short ton and an inferred gold resource of 5.7 million short tons of 0.4 ounces per short ton in the Goshute Canyon area immediately east of the study area; (3) an indicated gold resource of 75,000 short tons of 0.22 ounces per short ton in the Queen of Sheba mine just west of the study area; and (4) an inferred gold resource of 3,800 short tons of 0.26 ounces per short ton in the Gold Bond area immediately east of the study area.

Preliminary Report on Uranium Occurrence, Silver King Claims, Tooele County, Utah

Description: Abstract: Uranium was discovered on the Silver King claims in the fall of 1953. The claims are on the west flank of the Sheeprock Mountains in the eastern part of the Erickson mining district, Tooele County, Utah. Uraninite occurs in north- to northwest-trending copper-nickel-silver bearing fissure veins near the margin of a granitic stock of probable late Tertiary age. Sedimentary rocks in contact with the granite are chiefly dolomite and quartzite of Middle and Upper Ordovician age. Diamond drilling on this property did not disclose significant amounts of uranium; however, encouraging showings have been found by underground exploration by the owner.
