Mineral Resources of the Wabayuma Peak Wilderness Study Area, Mohave County, Arizona

Description: From abstract: The Wabayuma Peak Wilderness Study Area (AZ-020-037/043), for which a mineral survey was requested by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, encompasses 40,118 acres in northwestern Arizona. Fieldwork was carried out in 1986-88 by the U.S. Bureau of Mines and the U.S. Geological Survey to appraise the identified (known) resources and assess the mineral resource potential (undiscovered) of the wilderness study area. Within the Wabayuma Peak Wilderness Study Area are 14 private parcels of land totaling 1,315 acres. The Wabayuma Peak Wilderness Study Area, including the 14 private parcels of land, is herein referred to as the "wilderness study area" or the "study area." The Boriana, Antler, and Copper World mines lie near the east boundary of the study area. The Boriana mine was a major tungsten-producing mine of the United States during World War II. The Antler and Copper World mines produced relatively small amounts of copper and zinc prior to 1970.

Mineral Resources of the Sleeping Giant Wilderness Study Area, Lewis and Clark County, Montana

Description: From abstract: A mineral resource survey was conducted in 1987 by the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Bureau of Mines to evaluate mineral resources (known) and mineral resource potential (undiscovered) of the Sleeping Giant Wilderness Study Area (MT-075-111) in Lewis and Clark County, Montana. The only economic resource in the study area is an inferred 1.35-million-ton reserve of decorative stone (slate); a small gold placer resource is subeconomic. A high resource potential for decorative slate exists directly adjacent to the area of identified slate resource and in the northeastern part of the study area. The rest of the study area has a low potential for decorative slate. The westernmost part of the study area has a moderate resource potential for copper and associated silver in strata-bound deposits in green beds and limestone; potential is low in the rest of the study area.

Mineral Resources of the Paria-Hackberry Wilderness Study Area, Kane County, Utah

Description: From abstract: The Paria-Hackberry Wilderness Study Area, in central Kane County, southern Utah, is a region of generally flat-lying, gently folded sedimentary rocks, bounded on the east by the east-dipping limb of the East Kaibab monocline and cut by sheer-walled, narrow canyons. The area selected for study by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management totaled 94,642 acres (148 square miles); because of uncertainty as to final boundaries, the U.S. Geological Survey studied an additional contiguous 41,180 acres (64 square miles).

The Willow Creek-Kashwitna District, Alaska

Description: From introduction: The district described in this report is a triangular area covering about 300 square miles in the southwestern part of the Talkeetna Mountains. The Kashwitna River forms the northern boundary, the Susitna Valley flats the western, and the Willow Creek gold district, which is in the extreme southwestern part of the Talkeetna Mountains, the southern. As the area examined is not a distinct geographic unit, its boundaries being arbitrarily chosen and set only by the limitation of time spent in the field, a description of its geography applies to practically the entire western and southern portions of the Talkeetna Mountains, of which it is a part.

Geology of Big Horn County and the Crow Indian Reservation, Montana: with Special Reference to the Water, Coal, Oil and Gas Resources

Description: From introduction: This report contains information concerning the geology of Big Horn County and the Crow Indian Reservation and their resources in ground water, coal, oil, and gas. These facts were collected in the course of studies for about a dozen field projects, which ranged in character from reconnaissance studies of large areas to very detailed mapping of certain tracts to show the occurrence of oil and gas. Consequently, the information at hand, either as to the geology or the resources, is not equally complete and definite for all parts.

Mineral Resources, Geology, and Geophysics of the Worthington Mountains Wilderness Study Area, Lincoln County, Nevada

Description: From summary: The U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Bureau of Mines studied 26,587 acres of the Worthington Mountains Wilderness Study Area (NV-040-242) in Lincoln County, Nevada. The study of this acreage was requested by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. In this report, the studied area is called "wilderness study area" or just "study area." Field studies of the area were conducted during fall 1983 and spring 1984 by Bureau of Mines personnel and during fall 1984 and spring 1985 by geologists and geophysicists of the Geological Survey. Metallic mineral (Cu, Pb, Zn, Au, Ag, W) resource potential within the study area is moderate, with level-B certainty, in the northernmost part, and it is low, with level-C certainty, in the remainder of the area. Identified resources of commodities with industrial applications occur in the area. Energy resources are unknown; accordingly, their resource potential is considered low, with level-B certainty.

Mineral Resources of the Medicine Lodge, Alkali Creek, and Trapper Creek Wilderness Study Areas, Big Horn County, Wyoming

Description: From introduction: This report presents an evaluation of the mineral endowment (identified resources and mineral resource potential) of the study area and is the product of several separate studies by the U.S. Bureau of Mines (USBM) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Identified resources are classified according to a modification of the system described by McKelvey (1972) and the USBM and USGS (1980), which is shown in the Appendix. Identified resources are studied by the USBM. Mineral resource potential is the likelihood of occurrence of undiscovered metals and nonmetals, industrial rocks and minerals, and of undiscovered energy sources (coal, oil, gas, oil shale, tar, and geothermal sources). It is classified according to the system of Goudarzi (1984) and is shown in the Appendix. Undiscovered resources are studied by the USGS.
