Alum Deposits near Silver Peak Quadrangle, Nevada

Locality. About 10 miles north of Silver Peak, Nevada, there lies, by the roadside, a deposit of alum and sulphur. This has been many times located and prospected as a sulphur mine, but not until recently has the relatively important amount of alum in it been recognized. No important work has yet been done on the deposit. USGS Professional Paper (PP: 55), pg 157. For more info about this resource or to download this resource, please see the links provided.
