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 ...
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 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 ...
Geology of the southern part of the Sand Springs Range, Churchill County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1966)
The southern part of the Sand Springs Range is underlain by metamorphic Mesozoic rocks, which contain both sedimentary and volcanic origin.
Scarp degradation and fault history south of Carson City, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1979)
Examination of faults south of Carson City indicates that scarps erode more rapidly in non-indurated alluvium and that Pleistocene soils, developed on older scarps, prevent scarp degradation and result in faults with steeper ...
The petrochemistry of the allanite bearing granitoids, Red Rock area, Washoe County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1978)
Field geologic and petrochemical studies were conducted on allanite-bearing tonalite dikes and a series of Cretaceous Sierran-type intrusives.
Seismic refraction surveys of alluvium-filled washes, Yucca Mountain, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1985)
Seismic refraction surveys were conducted in washes near Yucca Mountain to determine depths to the interface between unsaturated alluvium and unsaturated bedrock. Analysis of seismic data from 11 locations in three washes ...
Geology of the Bishop Creek area, Elko County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1968)
The geology and stratigraphy of the Bishop Creek area of Elko County, Nevada, have been studied and a geologic map is presented.
Geology and tungsten mineralization of a portion of the Ragged Top mining district, Pershing County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1980)
The area surrounding Ragged Top Mine in south –central Pershing County, Nevada, is underlain by Late Triassic-Jurassic sediments which are intruded by a Cretaceous granodiorite pluton. Tertiary volcanics overlie both the ...
