Geology, alteration, and mineralization in the pyroclastic and sedimentary deposits of the Bretz-Aurora Basin, McDermitt Caldera, Nevada-Oregon
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1981)
Miocene to Pliocene age sediments in the Bretz-Aurora basin, 16 miles west of McDermitt, Nevada, form as a series of blanketing phreatomagmatic and plinian, ash and lapilli, subaerial and subaqueous deposits. Epithermal ...
A preliminary study of focal mechanisms of small earthquakes in the central Nevada region
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1967)
First arrivals suggest that normal and right-lateral movement was occurring on the Fairview Fault, except at the southern end, where it appears that reverse faulting is occurring.
Uniaxial test and mechanical behavior analysis of the tuffaceous beds of Calico Hills, Yucca Mountain, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1993)
Uniaxial compression tests were performed on specimens of the tuff found in the Calico Hills near Yucca Mountain. The mechanical properties of the tuffs from the same stratigraphic location are highly consistent and vary ...
Geology, trace element geochemistry and hydrothermal alteration at the Buckhorn gold mine, Eureka County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1987)
Precious-metal mineralization is hosted in a sequence of Tertiary volcanic and sedimentary rocks. The mineralization was deposited by a paleo-hot spring system.
The geomorphic evolution and depositional history of the Carson River delta, Lahontan Reservoir, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1994)
Since completion in 1915, Lahontan Reservoir has impounded water from the Carson and Truckee Rivers and served as a sink for sediments and trace elements including Hg (mercury), Au (gold), and Ag (silver) derived from ...
Geology of the Buckskin mine, Douglas County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1987)
The Buckskin Mine, developed on a quartz-chlorite-sulfide-gold vein, is hosted by altered meta-andesite and rhyolite porphyry. The vein may have formed in Late Cretaceous time.
Geology of the Lantern property near Scossa mining district, Pershing County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1985)
The Lantern property and Scossa mining district o-f northern Pershing County, Nevada, exhibit gold-silver mineralization characteristic o-f epithermal systems. Mineralized boulders deposited as clasts in a mid-Tertiary ...
Earthquake swarm near Denio, Nevada, February to April, 1973
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1974)
An investigation of historic earthquake activity in northwest Nevada shows that earthquake swarms are typical. Evidence suggests that these swarms are associated with geothermal activity. An earthquake swarm occurred during ...
A deuterium-calibrated, discrete-state compartment model of regional groundwater flow, Nevada Test Site and vicinity
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1990)
A deuterium-calibrated, discrete-state compartment model simulates regional ground-water flow for a portion of southern Nevada which includes the Nevada Test Site. Model simulated discharge rates, flow directions, flow ...
Hydrocarbon potential of Yucca Mountain, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1989)
Results suggest that only certain source rocks at the Nevada Test Site are in the peak oil generation window.
