Aeromagnetic Map of Burney and the Surrounding Area, Northeastern California

Open-File Report 2021-1006



An aeromagnetic survey was conducted to improve understanding of the geology and structure in the area around Burney, northeastern California. The new data are a substantial improvement over existing data and reveal a prominent north northwest-trending magnetic grain that allows extension of mapped faults, delineation of plutons within the Mesozoic basement in the northern Sierra Nevada, and linear anomalies that limit the amount of strike-slip offset along various faults in the area.
