Map and interpretation of geochemical anomalies in the White Mountains, Blanco Mountain, Birch Creek, and Black Canyon Roadless Areas, White Mountains, California and Nevada

January 1, 1994

The geochemical results show the most anomalous part of the study area to be the White Mountain Fault zone along the northwestern range front.  Silver, lead, and zinc mineralization in calcareous rocks, porphyry copper in dikes, gold-arsenic quartz vein deposits, tungsten and molybdenum tactite mineralization, and argillic alteration zones are indicated.  Titanium and molybdenum were detected in Jeffery Mine Canyon, an area known for rutile deposits.
