Abstract

Geochemical sampling of the Bunk Robinson Peak and Whitmire Canyon Roadless Areas was completed in the spring of 1980. The purpose of the geochemical sampling was to determine if certain metals, and "pathfinder" elements in heavy-mineral concentrates and stream sediments are enriched beyond normal black-ground amounts. The enrighment of elemental contents above background amounts in these samples can be importatn clue to the presence of a potential mineral deposit. These geochemical investigations are of part of an intergrated mineral resource investigation of the Bunk Robinson Peak and Whitmire Canyon Roadless Areas that also include geologic mapping (Hayes, 1982) and an evaluation of mineral resource potential (Hayes and others, in press).
