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

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

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 nonmetallic 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.

A table indicates which resources are likely to occur in each of the proposed areas of land withdrawal.
