No mineral-resource potential was identified during studies of the Little Frog Roadless Area, Tennessee. Possibilities exist, however, for the occurrence of massive sulfide-bearing rocks of the type mined in the adjacent Ducktown Basin at depth beneath the roadless area. A possibility also exists for the presence of natural gas in sedimentary rocks at great depth. Insufficient data to support these concepts precludes assessing any of the roadless area as having resource potential. A limited amount of geologic mapping coupled with seismic work would be useful to test whether rocks of the Ducktown Basin are present at depth under the roadless areas. Seismic work and drilling would be necessary also to test for the presence of gas at great depths.
