Geosphere, February 2008, v. 4, p. 218-246, doi:10.1130/GES00126.1, Figure 8 - A full resolution version of Figure 8. Subset of Plate 3 showing variation in geologic mapping detail between Ruby Mountains and East Humboldt Range (B, Fig. 6). Quartzite and quartzitic schist units can be delineated within undifferentiated metamorphic units using the quartz mineral index map. Note small patches of identified carbonate within calcite marble in Ruby Mountains. Interstate 80 extends across the upper left of the maps. Map at left is from Coats (1987).
