Abstract

On the basis of a mineral survey the contiguous Coyote Southeast and Table Mountain Roadless Areas, California have one area of probable and two areas of substantiated mineral-resource potential. Mineral occurrences in these areas are in tactite deposits with tungsten as the most important metal; copper, molybdenum, and gold occur in small amounts in the same deposits. One area in the southwestern part of the Coyote Southeast Roadless Area has anomolous amounts of uranium in stream-sediment samples but no resource potential was identified. The geologic terrane precludes the occurrence of fossil fuel resources. More detailed geochemical sampling of rocks and eroded material in the areas with metamorphic rock might reveal additional small tungsten resources at or near the surface in tactite deposits.
