Project summary:

The Humboldt River basin includes many of the nation's largest gold deposits. Using geological, geophysical, and geochemical data, the project will assess the potential for undiscovered mineral deposits in the basin. It also will examine the environmental signatures of mineral deposits in the study area and generate a geoenvironmental map of the Humboldt River basin. This work was requested by BLM and will provide them with important long-term land-use planning information.
