Summary

This dataset includes the magnetotelluric (MT) sounding data collected in 2003 along a north-south profile west of Tooele, Utah. It is important to know whether major mining districts in the Northern Nevada Gold Province are underlain by rocks of the Archean Wyoming craton, which are known to contain orogenic gold deposits, or by accreted rocks of the Paleoproterozoic Mojave province. It is also important to know the location and orientation of the Archean/Proterozoic suture zone between these provinces as well as major basement structures within these terranes because they may influence subsequent patterns of sedimentation, deformation, magmatism, and hydrothermal activity. This study was funded by the U.S. Geological Survey's Mineral [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this data release is to provide MT station locations and data to the public. In the Great Basin, the strike of the Archean/Proterozoic suture zone is poorly constrained because it is largely concealed below a Neoproterozoic-Paleozoic miogeocline and basin fill. To better constrain the location and strike of the Archean/Proterozoic suture zone below cover, a north-south MT sounding profile was acquired in north western Utah to investigate buried structures or sutures that may have influenced subsequent regional fluid flow and localized mineralization.
