Geochemical map and rock and stream-sediment data from the Wild Rogue Wilderness, Coos and Curry counties, Oregon

January 1, 1994

The Wild Rogue Wilderness is located in Coos and Curry Counties, southwestern Oregon and covers part of the Bone Mountain, Marial,  and Agness 15' quadrangles (fig. 1). It is an elongate area, 19 mi by 0.8 to 3 mi (31 km by 1.3 to 5 km) and includes approximately 35,818 acres extending from the town of Agness northeast to Mount Bolivar.  The area is characterized by several diverse geologic terranes described in detail by Gray and others (1982). 

This paper summarizes semiquantitative chemical analyses of 256 rocks for 23 elements and analyses of 40 stream-sediment samples for 33 elements as presented in Gray and Peterson (1982).
