Structure: Thrust Fault, Major N-S Fault

Alteration: Sericitization-Kaolinization

Deposit: Series of interlacing pipes or chimneys or chambers: replacement ore bodies along faults & fissures the black forest mine was first worked in the early 1870's, and intermittently thereafter. In 1904 the smelter at jaspar of the black forest smelting. And refining co. Turn out 700 bars of bullion As production continued. Wilson (1937) reported that prior to 1910 considerable ore from the black forest mine was mined and smelted on the property. In february 1916 the black forest mining and smelting co was incorporated, and re-incorporated in 1928 to operate the black forest mine. In 1929 the big 4 and keystone claims were added to their property holdings a long with and after the consolidation with the monarch mine which was effected in 1928. The new company was known As the missouri monarch consolidated mines company and operated continuously through 1937. Production records are scanty, but smelter returns on 30,000 tons mined from the black forest from 1919 to 1928 had a net return of $608,500. Most of the oxidized lead-silver ore above the 150 ft level came from a series of interlacing pipes or chimneys and chambers in white 1.s. This ore was shipped at this time (pre1928) to a.s. & r. Co. At murray, utah. The mine pre 1937 opened by 5-6 adits and over 7000 ft of workings with drifts, raises, stopes etc..the black forest-bronco tunnel is 2,700 ft and served for ore haulage, mining, and access; with its completion sometime before 1937. The ore occurs a long n W fault fissures, As replacement ore bodies in limestone (favorable), As chimneys, pipes and globular bodies 3 ft or more in diameter in closed in ferruginous casings. The mine is worked from 8 levels with over 10,000 ft of workings; many stopes are developed on major mineralized fissures. The ore is a fine-grained mixture of lead and copper carbonates and oxides with 20% lead and 20 oz. Of silver per ton. Sulfides begin to appear in the deepest workings of the mine.

Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Quaternary - Miocene
0 - 23.03 Ma



ID: 3185380
Cenozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Cenozoic (0 - 23.03 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks

Reference: Chorlton, L.B. Generalized geology of the world: bedrock domains and major faults in GIS format: a small-scale world geology map with an extended geological attribute database. doi: 10.4095/223767. Geological Survey of Canada, Open File 5529. [154]

Late Devonian - Middle Devonian
358.9 - 393.3 Ma



ID: 2865156
Carbonate Shelf Sequence - Limestone and minor dolomite

Age: Devonian (358.9 - 393.3 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Devils Gate Limestone; Guilmette Formation; Sultan Limestone

Description: Includes generally cliff-forming, thin- to thick-bedded limestone. These rocks are mainly shallow water subtidal, intertidal, and supratidal deposits formed on a broad inner carbonate shelf (Stewart, 1980). The Devils Gate Limestone and Guilmette Formation in northern Nevada are the principal units, and the Sultan Limestone is included from the southern part of the State. Unit is overlain (usually disconformably) by the Pilot Shale of unit MDcl except in southernmost Nevada where it is overlain by Mississippian carbonate (Mc). It depositionally overlies Middle and Lower Devonian unit Dcd. In a few places, such as southern Nevada and parts of Eureka County, regional mapping did not distinguish the Upper and Middle Devonian section from the Lower Devonian section, and all of the Devonian is included in unit Dc. Rocks mapped as the Simonson Dolomite would fit into this depositional sequence (sequences 9 and 10 of Cook and Corboy, 2004), but they are not differentiated from the underlying dolomites in White Pine or Elko Counties, so they are all included in unit Dcd here, not unit Dc. This unit crops out in Clark, Elko, Eureka, Lander, Lincoln, Nye, and White Pine Counties.
