Price $ Geologic maps have provided the key to finding new gold deposits in Nevada. Defining the Problem. The western states contain many gold deposits (Fig. 1), and a zone of faulted sedimentary and igneous rocks in northeastern Nevada, known as the “Carlin” trend, is the most productive region in the country.

The paper specifically focuses on the Sierra Nevada north of 37 degrees, 30 minutes and from the Sacramento Valley to the eastern Great Basin. The first part of the work describes the general topography, geology, and fossils of the Tertiary auriferous gravel district (including the “Calaveras Skull” hoax of ).

Mineral deposits are far more poorly understood than most people acknowledge. The principal reasons are that (1) we have poor controls on time, and (2) the ore-forming systems—much larger than the deposits themselves—are crustal in scale, but critical processes operate at meter to micrometer scales.

I have collected and dealt in fine Nevada minerals for several years now and have seen quite a few new, exciting finds.
