Abstract

The Orleans Mountain Roadless Area (C5079, B5079) located along the Siskiyou-Trinity County line in the Salmon Mountains of northern California was studied for mineral-resource potential. Several areas with probable gold resource potential were identified based on examination of mines and prospects, analytical values of selected elements, and historical records of gold and silver production. Gold, silver, and to a lesser extent lead and copper occur in vein systems that cut all the different lithologies in the roadless area.
