Abstract

Behrendt and others (1968) pointed out the close correlation between a belt of extreme gravity lows (Behrendt and Bajwa, 1974) and a zone of precious and base mineral deposits (Tweto and Simms, 1963, fig. 1).  Tweto and Case (1972) showed that this belt of gravity lows probably reflects a series of Laramide and post-Laramide intrusions of relatively low density which may have influenced the hydrothermal systems responsible for much of the mineralization in the Colorado Mineral Belt.
