Significant Gold Mineralization –Wyoming Examples

W. Dan Hausel


According to the available records, only 400,000 ounces of gold, 160,000 ounces of silver, 900 ounces of platinum, 17,000 ounces of palladium, 29,000 pounds of lead, nearly 64 million pounds of copper and 135 million tons of iron were produced in Wyoming in the past (Hausel and Graff, 1991). Even so, the geology is favorable for discovery of significant precious metal deposits and with continued exploration by mining companies, precious metal production in Wyoming should dramatically eclipse past production.
