2014 (approx.)

Detailed Description

Outcrop mineral classification map of the western side of the Orange Hill porphyry copper deposit. This mineral map was generated from data collected using a HySpexTM spectrometer. Note the different colors that indicate a predominance of clays, muscovite, and gypsum (likely related to porphyry mineralization) across the hillside. Data collected at 30-centimeter spatial resolution. Credit: USGS
