R. E. Beane, Jaramillo C., L. E., and M. S. Bloom

Abstract:

The materials presented in this paper are partial results of a continuing study of the Orogrande District by the senior author and graduate students in the Geoscience Department of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. Some of the included information is drawn from previous reports on the area by Kelley (1949), Seager (1961), Schmidt (1962), and Schmidt and Craddock (1964). The New Mexico State Bureau of Mines and Mineral Resources has been exceedingly generous in its material and financial support of the project. One of the theses contributing to this communication (MSB) received financial assistance from the New Mexico Geological Society as well as the Society of Sigma Xi. Another current MS thesis project in the district by Donald Strachan, involving construction of a composite stratigraphic section for the Jarilla Mountains, has also received financial aid from the New Mexico Geological Society; preliminary results of this project are included herein.
