A Dataset of Magnetic Susceptibility, Metalization, and Alteration for Samples from the Stinkingwater Mining District, Absaroka Mountains, Wyoming

By Mark E. Gettings


Magnetic susceptibility was measured for 700 samples of drill core from thirteen drill holes in the porphyry copper-molybdenum deposit of the Stinkingwater mining district in the Absaroka Mountains, Wyoming. Measurements were performed on splits from 3 m (10 ft) sections of pulverized core. The measurements constitute a useful dataset because the same samples were studied to identify their alteration state and have been subjected to chemical analysis. Tables of the data are included in this report.
