C., are reported here in detail. Atomic-absorption analyses for gold and zinc in all samples and fluorometric analyses for uranium in rock samples are al, so reported. Localities for all samples are given in Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates. Brief descriptions of rock samples are also included.
