Abstract

The Bunk Robinson Peak and the Whitmire Canyon Roadless Areas straddle the Arizona-New Mexico State line in the southern Peloncillo Mountains. A mineral-resource survey identified a 1-sq-mi area of probable resource potential for molybdenum, bismuth, lead, zinc, and precious metals in the northwest part of the Bunk Robinson Peak roadless Area. This appraisal is based on the presence of hydrothermally altered rock and geochemical anomalies. Small deposits of perlite could be present locally, but none were seen. The possibility that resources of oil and (or) gas underlie the area is deemed to be very slight.
