A Mineral Appraisal of the Areas Traversed by the Salmon and Noatak Rivers in the Western Brooks Range: A Summary Report.
For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :16 pages
The Noatak and Salmon Rivers cross recognized belts or trends of metallic and related minerals that, except for a few small areas, have not been investigated by industry or government utilizing modern mineral exploration technology. Consequently, while the mineral trends can be inferred and in parts of the area roughly delineated, it is not possible to estimate relative favorability for finding deposits of the general size and grade mined elsewhere. This Bureau of Mines report briefly describes what is known about leasable and locatable minerals in the areas.
