    REPORT ON TONOPAII-NOT
VNL1KK BOHEMIA.
MANY persons in Oregon will
be iutctcstcJ in th latest
report of the United States
geological survey on the mining
district oi Tonopah just receivd
Ore deposits were discovered in the
Tonopah district, says the bulletin,
in Aptil, I900, by Jatuct L. Butler.
In the fall and winter of 19O.2, Mr.
J. K. Spurr of the United States
l?cohn;ical survey visited the dis
trict and studied it. He repeated
his visit tho following summer and
in the fall of lyo3 gave the main
economic results of Lis investiga
tions to the public iu the form of a
brief preliminary report, which the
purvey listed as Bulletin Ho. 2to.
The final report, which is entitled
"Geology of the Tonopah Mining
District, Nevada," has recently
been published as Professional
Taper No. 42 and is now available,
free of charge, to all who are inter
ested iu the development of this im
portant region. 1
OK MI CH vaixk.
The geologieal problem presented
in this district could hare been
solved only by a trained petrogra
pher, since the igneous rocks that
carry the vein deposits have been
largely covered by practically bar
ren flows of more recent eruptions.
The very careful and thorough study
of the district which Mr. Spurr has
made can hardly fail to be of great
practical value to the miner, at well
as of scientific interest to the stu
dent of ore deposits. The Talue
and interest of the text are en
hanced by the addition of 78 illus
trations, which include topographic
and geologic maps (some of them in
colors), diagrams, stereograms,
plans of veins and faults, geologio
sections and cross sections, and
photographic views of characteristic
landscape feature.
The rocks of the mining district
are all of immediate volcanic origin,
with the exception of a series of
water laid tuffs, which represent the
accumulations of fine volcanic det
tritus in a Tertiary age, probably
Miocene-Pliocene. The first erup
tives of this volcanic epoch, as dis
played at Tonopah. were andesites.
Two andesites have been distin
guished the younger or earlier an
desite and the later andesite, which
is slightly more basic than the
earlier atdesite. Subsequently
eruptions o! rbyolite and of dacite
occurred at intervals for a long
time and produced several of the
formations mapped, which includ
tuffs and flows.
STRUCTURE IS COMPLICATED.
The structure is so complicated
that no general cross sections hare
been made. Some interesting infor
mation on faulting has, however,
been obtained", chiefly from mine
workings.
The most important mineral reins
occur in the early andesite, and do
not extend into the overlying rocks
The mineralization was probably
caused by hot ascending waters im
mediately after the earl'er, andesite
eruption. The primary ores have a
gangue of quartz, adulana, aod
some sericite and carbonates, and
contain silver sulphides such as
argentite, polybasite and stephanite
silver eelenide, gold in a jet un
determined form, chalcopyrite, py
rite and some galena and blende.
The depth of oxidization is irregular.
In the ore of the oxidized zone no im
portant changes in the amount of
gold or silver, as compared with the
primary ore, have taken place.
The ore near the surface is not a
truly oxidized ore, however, but is
an intimate mixture of original sul
phides (and seknides), together
with secondary sulphides, chlorides
and oxides. Secondary sulphides
include argentite and pyrargyrite.
A series of veins of small import
ance commercially within the Tono
pah district was formed after the
eruption of one of the members of
the rhyoHte-dacite series, the Tono-
pan rnyoJite-uacite. 1 neae veins
may be large, but are usually cf
low grade or barren. They fre
quently contain a greater propor
tion of gold than the earlier andesite
veins, and have other distinguish
ing characteristics.
ARAFAT IS ALMOST BARREN.
A series of veins of still less im"
portance was formed after the erup
tion of one of the later membeps of
the rbyolite dacite series a silic
eous rbyolite, which makes up some
of the hills near Tonopah. One of
these, Mount Ararat, a denuded vol
anic neck, is traversed by fissure
veins that carry very little values.
Part of the earlier andesite is pro
foundly altered. The maximum
effect of the waters which caused
theso alterations was the formation
of the niinerul veins along their cir
culation channels. The discussion
of these processes is followed by the
detailed study ol analyses of typical
specimens. The conclusion is drawn
that the mineralizing waters were
charged with an excess of silica, and
probably of potash, together with
silver, gold, antimony, arsenic, cop
per, lead, zinc, and carbonic acid
and sulphur, with somo chlorine
and flouriue, but that they wero no
ticeably deficient in iron.
The alterations of the later nudn
ite bv thermal wateis is also dis
cussed. By comparison of analyses
and by microscopic studies it is con
cluded that the waters which pro
duced the alteration were highly
charged with carbonic acid and sul
phureted hydrogen and contained
magneia, iron and lime.
It is interesting to note that Mr.
Spurr finds close resemblance be
tween the Tonopah ore deposits and
the deposits of the Comstock lode in
Nevada and of the Pachuca district
in Mexico. The ores pf Silver City
and Del.hmar districts in Idaho are
also similar in many respects to.
those of Tonopah. These deport
all occur in tertiary lavas, chiefly
andesitic.
From various reports given out
by those competeut to study the
characteristics of the formation of
veins and their filling relative to the
Bonemia Mining District we note
while reading this report many fa -vorable
conditions existing iu Bo -hernia
that compare with the moste
prominent miumg districts f th
land.
The Klamath Palls F.xpross
wishes it understood that Klamath
Falls has no intention of annexing
itself to California iu a oommercial
sense and bluntly remarks: 'A good

sire of Klamath county to secede
from Oregon and join her fortune s
with California The people of
