Geologic Map of the Spring Mountain Quadrangle, White Pine County, Nevada and Utah, NBMG FS18

1:24,000 scale Geologic Map of the Spring Mountain Quadrangle, Nevada and Utah. Detailed geologic mapping by Phillip B. Gans, Elizabeth L. Miller, and Jeffrey Lee in 1999. Map includes 1 cross section and description of 17 units. The GIS work was in support of the U.S. Geological Survey COGEOMAP program. The Geodatabase specifies feature datasets and feature classes, together with feature attributes, subtypes and domains, suitable for a variety of geologic maps. In addition to basic geology (lithology, contacts and faults, etc.), the maps may include metamorphic overprints, cross sections, and explanatory legend-graphics such as correlation charts, used to supplement columnar legends. The Snake Range, in eastern White Pine County, Nevada, is a 150-km-long, north-trending mountain range in the northern Basin and Range province. Sacramento Pass divides the range into two main parts, the northern and southern Snake Range. The Spring Mountain Quadrangle is located on the extreme northeast corner of the northern Snake Range. Previous work includes Hose and Blake (1976) a 1 :250,000-scale geologic map of White Pine County which included the first published geologic map of all of the northern Snake Range; Nelson (1966, 1969) mapped the northern end of the range as part of a regional mapping project that included the Kern Mountains and southern Deep Creek Range; studies in the northern Snake Range by geologists based at Stanford University began in 1981 by Miller and others (1983) and Gans and Miller (1983). Geologic mapping was supported by the Quadrangle mapping Program of the Geological Society of Nevada and by Echo Bay Minerals Company, Magma Nevada mining Company (now BHP), and the NBMG Mining Coop Fund.
