Locality type:


Location and History: The Ivanpah mining district is in northeastern San Bernardino County about 35 miles NE of Baker and S of the Mountain Pass-Qark Mountain area. The district includes the mines in both the Ivanpah Range and the Mescal Range, which is just to the W.

NOTE: There is no file for this district in the USGS MRDS database.

Gold mining began here at least as early as 1882, when the Mollusk Mine was opened. Moderate mining activity continued in the district until about 1915, and there was some work again in the 1930's.

Geology and Ore Deposits: The western part of the district is underlain predominantly by limestone and dolomite, with smaller amounts of shale, sandstone and dacite. To the E is granite and gneiss, and to the S is quartz monzonite. The gold deposits are in quartz veins or mineralized breccia, which occur chiefly in granitic rocks or gneiss, although the Mollusk vein is in dolomite. Other mineral commodities in the district are Ag, Cu, W, Sn, baryte, fluorspar & RRE's. As in the Clark mining district to the North, the metal-bearing deposits are associated with several major thrust fault zones.

Mines: Kewanee, Mollusk ($250,000), Morning Star, New Era and the Teutonia.
