Geologic Map of the Third Butte East Quadrangle, White Pine County, Nevada, NBMG FS16

A 1:24,000-scale, full-color geologic map of the Third Butte East 7.5' Quadrangle in White Pine County, Nevada, with one cross sections, and description of 19 units. One of the seven quadrangles in the north Snake Range mapped by Stanford University's Summer Field Program. The GIS work was in support of the U.S. Geological Survey COGEOMAP program. Detailed geologic mapping by Jeffrey Lee, Phillip B. Gans, Elizabeth L. Miller. First edition printing in 1999. The Third Butte East Quad is part of a Cenozoic metamorphic core complex containing the Northern Snalke Range decollement, a low-angle fault. Geologic mapping was supported by the Quadrangle Mapping Program of the Geologic Society of Nevada and Echo Bay Minerals Company, Magma Nevada Mining Company (now BHP), and the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology Mining Cooperation Fund. Previous work includes Hose and Blake (1976), a 1:250,000 scale geologic map of White Pine County. Miller and others (1983) and Gans and Miller (1983), based at Stanford University, explained the Cenozoic core complex. Detailed geologic mapping of the Snake Range began in 1981 at scales of 1:12,000 and 1:24,000 (Rowles, 1982; Gans and Miller, 1983; Grier, 1983, 1989; Gans and others, 1985, 1989; Geving, 1987; Lee and others, 1987; Huggins, 1990; Lee, 1990, 1995; Lee and Sutter, 1991).
