85, no. 1, p. The geology of Arizona began to form in the Precambrian. Igneous and metamorphic crystalline basement rock may have been much older, but was overwritten during the Yavapai and Mazatzal orogenies in the Proterozoic.

The Grenville orogeny to the east caused Arizona to fill with sediments, shedding into a shallow sea. GILA COUNTY. Gila County is in mountainous east-central Arizona, ranks eighth among the gold-producing counties of the State with a total of aboutounces produced through Most of the gold has been a byproduct of copper ores mined from the Globe- Miami district; a lesser amount has come from copper ores of the Banner district.

Geologic units in Gila county, Arizona. Additional scientific data in this geographic area and commonly contain coarser grained sediment than younger deposits in the same area.

( Ma) Quaternary surficial Most of the large copper deposits in Arizona are associated with porphyritic granitic rocks of this unit, and are thus named.

In Yuma County gold occurs with silver in the Kofa and Gila mountains. In the Harquahala Mountains, the precious metal is found with copper and lead. In the Cienega district of the Williams Mountains, gold occurs with copper.

In the Castle Dome district of the Castle Dome Mountains, gold is found in lead-silver : The Gem Hunter.
