Abstract

The Lye Brook Wilderness contains no significant mineral deposits. Although the Cheshire Quartzite is a potential source of low-grade silica sand and crops out in a large area within the wilderness, its degree of induration and relative inaccessibility make its use prohibitive. No major concentation of base metals exist within the Precambrian rocks, although they contain the highest metal concentrations within the wilderness. Uranium mineralization is not extensive in the Precambrian rocks, despite the occurrence of significant deposits nearby.
