Mineralization at Granite Gap, Hidalgo County, New Mexico
— S. A. Williams


This brief paper is the outcome of study of the interesting oxide ores at Granite Gap. The geology of the area has been described in some detail by Gillerman (1958), and the mines have been mentioned by Lindgren and others (1910), who saw them during their most productive period.
The mineralization considered here is confined to occurrences in the Escabrosa and Horquilla limestones. The workings studied are all located in the prominent hill just south of Granite Gap and U.S. 80.
