Abstract
This report presents results of an evaluation of the potential for the production of gold and silver from undiscovered mineral deposits of five types--polymetallic vein, epithermal, polymetallic replacement, carbonate hosted, and hot spring--in the tonopah quadrangle, Nevada. It was completed as part of a continuing effort by the Bureau of Mines and the U.S. Geological Survey to develop and present mineral resource and potential supply information in a form that is more useful to decision-makers and analysts dealing with mineral-related policy and economic issues. An important part of this effort has been the development and application of techniques to provide quantitative (quantities and values) rather than qualitative (high, low) estimates of the undeveloped and undiscovered portions of the mineral endowment of an area. The study merges existing geologic knowledge of the region with the economics of mining and milling using current technologies.
