Reconnaissance Geology of the Southern Muggins Mountains Yuma County, Arizona

Description: Summary and conclusion: More than 4000 feet of Lower Miocene lake sediments were deposited upon a gneissic basement rock, at least locally. The sediments have been gently folded into broad anticlines and synclines and have been cut by high-angle faults with displacements on the order of 100 feet. Both basaltic (?) and acid andesitic lavas have intruded the sediments. A Pleistocene (?) conglomerate unconformably overlies all older exposed rocks. The lake sediments were considered to overlie the adjacent thick series of andesite flows (l). This was not established by a cursory examination. The sediments appeared to be in fault contact with the lavas although the relationship was always obscured by the younger conglomerate or alluvial cover. Since a dike of this acid andesitic composition was observed cutting the sediments, there is a possibility that the lake sediments are older than or contemporaneous with the thick extrusive andesite series.

Summary Geologic Report on Drilling in Western Prescott and Williams Quadrangles: Mohave, Yavapai, and Yuma Counties, Arizona

Description: From abstract: This drilling project in northwestern Arizona consisted of 18 holes drilled to depths ranging from 1,341 to 5,491 feet (409 to 1,673 meters). The holes were sited to determine the lateral extent of the uranium-bearing, paludal/lacustrine strata of the Anderson Mine in Date Creek basin and to obtain additional data to improve the resource estimates for the Date Creek and Big Sandy basins.
