Abstract

Geological, geochemical, and geophysical evidence, together with a 'review of historical mining and prospecting activities, suggests that most of the Whitewater Wilderness Study Area has low potential for all types of mineral and energy resources- including precious and base metals, building stone and aggregate, fossil fuels, radioactive-mineral resources, and geothermal resources. One small area in the southern part of the study area shows evidence of gold and silver mineralization, and this locality has a low to moderate potential for the discovery of low-grade gold and silver resources.
