Abstract

There is little likelihood for the occurrence of metallic mineral or energy resources based on a mineral survey in 1981-82 in the Mount Adams Wilderness and contiguous roadless areas, Washington. No mining claims exist in the study area, which is almost entirely a young andesitic stratovolcano. There is no indication of a shallow magma reservoir capable of supporting a convective geothermal system. Drilling in the lowland periphery of the volcano might be technically difficult, but 150 degree -200 degree F waters suitable for space heating would not be unexpected at depths of 5000-6000 ft.
