Abstract

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) made a reconnaissance geochemical survey of the Southern Massanutten Roadless Area to test for indistinct or unexposed mineral deposits that might be recognized by their geochemical halos.  Sixty-two stream-sediment and 52 rock samples were collected from within and near the study area by Lesure, assisted by J. H. DeYoung, Jr. (USGS) and A. E. Grosz (USGS) in October 1979.  All samples were analyzed for 31 elements by means of semiquantitative emission spectrographic methods by Forn in USGS laboratories, Denver, COlo. (table 1).  The samples were also analyzed for zinc by means of an atomic absorption method by B. F. Arbogast, USGS laboratories, Denver, Colo.
