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 granodiorite and sediments. Mineral assemblages are developed at or near the intrusive-carbonate contact. Development of alteration and scheelite mineralization has been controlled by structure and stratigraphy.
