REGION RICH IN MINERALS
The Origin of the Gold, Galena,
and Copper Deposits in South
ern Santa fe County and a
Description of the Formation
in Which They-Are Foond.
The Engineering and Mining Jonurnal
of last Saturday published an interest
ing six column article on the ore de
posits of the San Pedro district in San
ta Fe county. The article Is Illustrated
with photographs and drawings and is
written by Richard S. McCaffery, man
ager of the copper mineB of the Santa
Fe Gold and Copper Company at San
Pedro, In conjunction with Morrison B.
Young. The following is a synopsis of
the article: - t
In the southern part . of Santa Fe
county there are three groups of moun
tains, each of which penetrates' the Car
boniferous and Cretaceous sedimentary
strata as a unit and presents in the
main the same characteristics and ap
pearance. They extend in a north and
south line and in order from the north,
are the Ortiz, the Tuertos and the
South Mountains, The region has long
been known for its mineral wealth.
The mountains present a striking
feature, Which first attract attention
as one approaches the district over the
plains from the east. They resemble
each other so closely in appearance and
height that the question naturally aris
es: Are not the three related In
some way geologically? To the north
Is the Ortiz group, a cluster of sharp,
cone-like peaks, formed by the breaking
of the eruptive syenite-porphyry
through the flat beds of limestone and
sandstone of the Carboniferous and
Cretaceous age. These beds have been
silehtly lifted by the intrusion, and!
slope away from the mountains with a
gentle and even dip. Four miles to the
south Is the Tuerto or San Pedro group.
the geology of the western portion of
which is the one exception to the rule
of this trio. This western part consists
of San Pedro mountain proper, the
greater part of which Is formed of tilted
sedimentary beds; but the eastern part
of the group, Including Oroqual moun
tain, consists entirely of the eruptive
sysntte-porphyry, with Its sharpt topo
graphy similar to the Ortiz group.
Again, three miles farther south, is
South Mountain, which' really includes
several peaks and numerous spurs. This
Is also formed by an intrusion of syenite-porphyry,
and shows the same to
pography as the first two groups.
A short distance north of the Ortls
mountains, but beyond the area of erup-
tlves, Is situated the colliery town of
Madrid, where the Colorado Fuel and
Iron Company Is working beds of both
bituminous and anthracite coal. In the
foothills northeast of the Ortls moun
tains Is the ancient mining village ot
Dolores. On the west side of the Tuerto
group is Golden, a small adobe town In
habited mostly by natives, who work In
the neighboring mines or who drywash
the placers In the vicinity. About two
miles south of Golden is San Pedro,
built up chiefly by the development of
the copper properties thereabout. Al
though the region has been known for
a very long time, there are only ft few
mines which have reached any note
worthy development in their under
ground workings, so that in many cases
the Interpretation of the geological fea
tures of the ore deposits is difficult.
The ore deposits may be divided Into
four classes: (1) Contact-deposits or
copper; (2) leadrsilver chlrpnpys; (3)
gold-veins; and (4) gold placers.
Under the first head come the depos
its worked for copper in the immediate
neighborhood of San Pedro. As men
tioned before, the western portion of
the Tuertos is formed of syenite-por
phyry with a crown of limestone ana
shales, which are intensely metamor
phosed, and which contain the copper
ores. The deposits exe" of the
class recently described by Llndgren as
contact deposits. The origin ot the ore
Is certainly duo to the pneumatolytlc
action resulting from a very-forcible
Intrusion of a molten magma from the
earth's interior among beds of limestone,
Gases and vapor were liberated ana
caused to penetrate Into the cracks and
crevices of tho superincumbent mats.
The limestone has been replaced by
massive zarnet. which Is In some cases
150 feet thick. In Intimate association
with the garnet the ore occurs as
chalcoDvrlte: while its associated mi
nerals are specular hematite, epidote
vesuviaoite, wollastonlte, quartz and
calcite. The ore Is always accompanied
by garnet, although the garnet does not
in all places carry ore. When the
garnet carries the ore, the ebaleopyrlte
is disseminated throughout .its mass,
and appears to be of synchronous origin,
