Abandoned Mine Land (AML) Geochemical Data: Star District, Utah

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

The Star District study area is located in the Star Mountain Range, approximately 50 miles north of Cedar City, Utah. The Star Range was historically mined for lead and silver beginning in the 1870s (Krahulec, 2018). The Star District samples can be spatially clustered into two groups: the first consists of samples closest to Topache Peak and the second consists of samples closest to Picacho Peak. From November to December, 2014 and June to July, 2015, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) collected a total of 141 samples from abandoned mine wastepiles, channel sediments downslope of wastepiles, and background areas. These samples were sieved to obtain the less than 177 micron fraction, which was homogenized and subjected to a four acid digestion prior to analysis by Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) methods.
