Abstract

In the course of general geologic mapping of the Hawthorne quadrangle, in western Nevada, the writer undertook a short study of the quicksilver deposits of the Pilot Mountains. The work was. done under the supervision of Henry G. Ferguson, in charge of the field work in the Hawthorne quadrangle, and the writer was accompanied by L. B. Spencer, mining engineer, of Mina, Nev., whose intimate knowledge of the district greatly facilitated the study and to whom the writer is indebted for much valuable information. Data on the general geology of the district, collected by Messrs. Ferguson and Cathcart, were freely drawn upon.

The deposits of the Pilot Mountains were first described by Knopf* and later briefly by Ransome.2
