Title: Mineral- and energy-resource potential for Pershing County, Nevada

Author: Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology
Year: 2006
Series: Open-File Report 2006-06
Version:
Format: 75 x 42 inches, poster
Scale:

This poster illustrates where proposed land withdrawals in Pershing County coincide with areas of mineral- and energy-resource potential as the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG), and others determined in assessments made.

Maps 3, 4, and 5 are from USGS assessments of favorable tracts for three broad types of metallic ore deposits, and Map 6 is a composite of these three maps.

Map 7 is from an NBMG assessment of metallic and non-metallic mineral resources.

Map 8 is an NBMG evaluation of geothermal resource potential.

Map 9 is from an NBMG assessment of potential for discovery of petroleum resources.

Maps 10, 11, and 12 illustrate potential for wind, biomass, and solar energy use.

Map 13 illustrates private land parcels overlain by federal lands that the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) considers suitable for disposal. The table indicates which resources are likely to occur in each of the proposed areas of land withdrawal.

This information is provided by the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (Jonathan G. Price, Larry J. Garside, Ronald H. Hess, Lisa Shevenell, John Muntean) and the Nevada Division of Minerals (Christy Morris, Alan Coyner) to assist in factoring mineral- and energy-resource potential into decisions regarding land withdrawals and future economic development.
