Igneous complex at Wah Wah Pass, Beaver County, Utah

Author: Max Perry Erickson
Publisher: Salt Lake City, 1966.
Series: Utah Geological and Mineralogical Survey.; Special studies
Edition/Format:   Print book : State or province government publication : English
Summary:
Three small dioritic stocks exposed in Wah Wah Pass have associated rock alteration features which suggest the possibility of a related economic mineralization. Most significant is the argillic alteration and introduced disseminated pyrite of a breccia zone in the easternmost stock. Reconnaissance geochemical analyses did not reveal anomalous concentrations of copper, lead, zinc, or molybdenum in the surface

Abstract:

Three small dioritic stocks exposed in Wah Wah Pass have associated rock alteration features which suggest the possibility of a related economic mineralization. Most significant is the argillic alteration and introduced disseminated pyrite of a breccia zone in the easternmost stock. Reconnaissance geochemical analyses did not reveal anomalous concentrations of copper, lead, zinc, or molybdenum in the surface exposures.

Magnetic readings from 400 gammas to 1,000 gammas above background were obtained over the dioritic stocks; local anomalies range to 9,000 gammas. The anomalies, which do not correlate with observable surface features, are most numerous over the brecciated and altered eastern stock; further exploration by other geophysical methods, by more intensive geochemical techniques, or by drilling may disclose subsurface economic mineralization in this area.
