Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has undertaken a mineral resources assessment for tungsten for a portion of the Great Basin in parts of western Nevada and east-central California. This data release provides the Great Basin Tungsten Database: the geospatial and geologic data, and results of chemical analyses for 46,955 samples collected in the assessment area, extracted from the USGS National Geochemical Database. These rock records were collected as part of various programs and projects at the USGS and analyzed from 1963 to 2015. The database represents rock records, each comprising one best value chemical determination for each analyzed chemical species, that include skarns, carbonate lithologies (for example, limestones, dolostones, [...]

Purpose

This dataset is an essential accompanying product for the tungsten skarn mineral resources assessment of the Great Basin. It provides the “best value” geochemical data related to all the samples found in the National Geochemical Database that are within the boundaries of the assessment area. It includes all the elements that were analyzed, with the intention of having those results available for users who might be interested in seeing or studying the distribution of other elements that could be associated with tungsten skarn deposits. It is also intended to provide a way for users to reproduce the data reduction used in the analysis of the igneous rocks that were considered as permissive units in the assessment, as explained in the Process Steps sections in the metadata.
