|Many sediment-hosted gold deposits occur along linear trends in the Great
The distribution and genesis of these deposits in the Great Basin is not
understood. In general, most models agree that regional structures played
important role in the spatial distribution of these deposits (e.g. Arehart
others, 1993; Ilchik and Barton, 1997; Radtke, 1985; Shawe, 1991; Sillitoe
Bonham, 1990; Tosdal, 1998). To investigate crustal structures that may
related to the genesis of gold deposits in the Great Basin, a regional
south-north profile of magnetotelluric (MT) soundings was acquired in 2003.
Resistivity modeling of the MT data can be used to investigate buried structures
or sutures that may have influenced subsequent tectonism, sedimentation,
regional fluid flow. The goal of this survey is to infer the location of
Archean/Proterozoic suture zone in east-central Tooele County, Utah. The
purpose of this report is to release the MT sounding data; no interpretation
the data is included.
