Structure: Callaghan ( 1938 ) States, "Alunite-Containing Beds Of Altered Volcanic Rocks Are Inclined Southward Against A Fault Trending West."

Commodity: Project 9350 - 01393 alunite resources

Deposit: Discovery year: ww1 callaghan ( 1973 ) says, "some high-grade natroalunite and alunite is restricted to vein-like lenses 10 ft or less in width and of limited continuity."

Geology: Local alunitic zones are high grade but small and spottily distributed.

Rock formation(s): Bullion Canyon Volcanics
