The U.S. Bureau of Mines conducted a mineral resource survey of approximately 232,000 acres in part of the Humboldt National Forest, Nevada, during 1989. About 75 pct of the study area was covered with mining claims. About 1,800 samples were collected and analyzed for 16 elements. Geologic structure, including thrust faults, is the most important factor in the localization of mineral deposits in the study area.
