DescriptionThis report is an update to already published county metallic mineral district bibliographies for Cochise, Graham, Greenlee, La Paz, Mohave, Pima, Santa Cruz, and Yuma Counties (Schnabel and Welty, 1986a,b; and Schnabel and others 1986). In a mineral district classification, known metallic mineral occurrences are grouped according to geologic and metallogenic criteria rather than the geographic associations used in the traditional mining-district (Keith and others, 1983a,b). Ideally, a mineral district should consist of mineral occurrences that have a common genesis. A mineral-district classification is especially useful for understanding the geologic setting of mineralization and the distribution of known mineral occurrences with similar geologic settings. A mineral-district map, however, is by no means a statement of mineral potential because future discoveries within and outside established districts will affect district boundaries. Although understanding the distribution of known mineral deposits is essential in evaluating mineral potential, many other geologic and technologic factors must also be considered (Fellows, 1984).
