Geologic Map of the Lamoille Quadrangle, Elko County, Nevada, NBMG M125

1:24,000 scale Geologic Map of the Lamoille Quadrangle, Elko County, Nevada. Detailed geologic mapping by Keith A. Howard in 2000. Field work done in 1963-65,1996-1997, assisted by Lee Wilson, 1963. Office Review by: Jim Faulds (NBMG), Chris Henry (NBMG), Arthur Snoke (University of Wyoming), and Mike Wells University of Nevada, Las Vegas). Field Review by: Chris Henry (NBMG) and Jon Price (NBMG). The geologic mapping was supported by Yale-Binney and D.F. Hewett scholarships, National Science Foundation, a Newmont Mining Company grant to NBMG, and USGS National ooperative Geologic Mapping Program. The Ruby Mountains and adjoining East Humboldt Range form one of more than a score of North American Cordilleran metamorphic core complexes (Crittenden and others, 1980). The quadrangle lies within the area of a geologic map of the Ruby Mountains (Howard and others, 1979, 1:125,000-scale). Geologic maps of adjacent quadrangles can be found in Howard (1966, 1:24,000), Smith and Howard (1977, 1:62,500), and MacCready and others (1997, ~1:45,500). Base map: U.S. Geological Survey Lamoille 7.5' Quadrangle, 1990. Subject: 1:24,000 scale Geologic Map of the Lamoille Quadrangle.
