Year: 2014
Series: Map 183z
Version: supersedes Open-File Report 2012-06
Format: digital files only: 433 MB, zipped (includes digital version of two plates: both 55 x 39 inches, color; text: 36 pages with some color, page 35 is 40 x 14 inches, page 36 is 11 x 15.5 inches)
Scale: 1:24,000

This map is a 1:24,000-scale, transect-style geologic map through the southern Diamond Mountains, the northern Fish Creek Range, and the southern Mountain Boy Range. The map area also passes through the southern part of the historical, and actively explored, Eureka mining district. The map is accompanied by three cross sections, which illustrate the deformation geometry both above and below the modern erosion surface, a detailed description of map units, a summary of the geologic history of the map area, and a description of mineral deposits in the Eureka mining district. In addition, new data on the distribution, petrographic and chemical characteristics, and timing of the late Eocene Eureka volcanic center is included. This report represents a detailed analysis of the stratigraphy and structure of a classic Great Basin geological locality.

Plate 1 is the geologic map with cross section A. Plate 2 contains cross sections B and C.

This map was prepared as part of the STATEMAP component of the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program in cooperation with the U.S. Geological Survey and with support from the Nevada Division of Minerals, the Geological Society of Nevada, and Timberline Resources Corporation.

This digital conversion project was undertaken by the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology in cooperation with the U.S. Geological Survey STATEMAP Program.

Data
  • Geodatabase (contains the ESRI geodatabase files for the map)
  • Illustrator\New\Images (contains JPEGs of Illustrator-based figures used on the map plates)
  • Images (contains different types of images) \GlobalMapper (contains the hillshade, topo, and unit color mashups created in Global Mapper)
  • Layerfiles (ESRI ArcGIS layer files of each layer in the table of contents of the ArcMap MXD file)
  • Shapefiles (ESRI shape files for each layer in the ArcMap table of contents of the ArcMap MXD file)

Docs (metadata folder)
Metadata—contains the metadata as a text file (.txt) for
  • Geodatabase

  • Each FeatureClass in the Geology FeatureDataSet

Maps (contains the final ESRI ArcGIS 10.1 ArcMap MXD file, and PDF of final map)

The symbol and image files listed above contain graphic symbol information about associated line, point, and polygon features found on the published map but that may not have been fully identified in the present format of the feature line, point, or polygon attribute file. The layer files are provided here for use with the geologic map digital conversion as an aid to a graphic presentation of the full data set. The files can be utilized in ESRI ArcGIS 10.1 version.

This data set results from a map previously compiled in ArcGIS and released in whole or in part as an NBMG Open- File Report. New geologic compilation and modifications/improvements were made by authors in ArcGIS during the preparation of this map; therefore, this map supersedes the previous NBMG Open-File Report. Compilation of new mapping and edits to linework (GeoLines), polygons (GeoPolys) and point data (GeoPoints) were made using ArcGIS 10.1. Linework was edited for line errors in ArcGIS, using the Topology rules: Lines Must Not Have Dangles, and Lines Must Not Have Pseudo Nodes. All features in GeoPoints, GeoLines, and GeoPolys are attributed with geodatabase domain values. Geology on cross sections was hand-drawn, scanned, and digitized and/or directly digitized/compiled in ArcMap. All labels on the map are annotation. Definition queries were applied to MXD layers. Layout was completed in ArcGIS. Slope-enhanced hillshade was compiled from 10m DEMs in Global Mapper 15 and mashed up with geologic unit colors and 2012 topo data and imported into ArcGIS as a GeoTIFF.
