Abstract

The geochemical results show the most anomalous part of the study area to be the White Mountain Fault zone along the northwestern range front.  Silver, lead, and zinc mineralization in calcareous rocks, porphyry copper in dikes, gold-arsenic quartz vein deposits, tungsten and molybdenum tactite mineralization, and argillic alteration zones are indicated.  Titanium and molybdenum were detected in Jeffery Mine Canyon, an area known for rutile deposits.
