Abstract

The U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Bureau of Mines made a geological and mineral survey of the Jerry Peak, Jerry Peak West, and Boulder Creek Wilderness Study Areas, Custer County, Idaho, from 1980 through 1983.

The area is underlain chiefly by lavas and pyroclastic rocks of the Eocene Challis Volcanics. Paleozoic sedimentary rocks are exposed along the east border of the Jerry Peak Wilderness Study Area and in two small areas farther west in the Jerry Peak and Jerry Peak West Wilderness Study Areas. All the rocks locally are intricately faulted. No veins or pervasive hydrothermal alteration are associated with these faults.
