Reitman, J., Rodriguez, B.D., and Brown, P.J., 2020, Audiomagnetotelluric survey to characterize the Sunnyside porphyry copper system in the Patagonia Mountains, Arizona: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This dataset includes audiomagnetotelluric (AMT) sounding data collected in 2008 in and near the Patagonia Mountains of southern Arizona. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducted a series of multidisciplinary studies as part of the Assessment Techniques for Concealed Mineral Resources project funded by the USGS Minerals Resources Program in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service. The USGS used AMT data at 6 sites along a southwest-northeast profile of about 10 kilometers across the northwest-trending Sunnyside porphyry copper system.

The purpose of this data release is to provide audiomagnetotelluric (AMT) station locations and data to the public. The primary goal of the AMT survey is to map changes in electrical resistivity with depth that are related to differences in rock type. Characterization of the size and resistivity of the mineralized area beneath overburden were of primary importance to be investigated by these variations in rock types.
