Notes
The regional aeromagnetic map (Fig. 4) reveals a large north-trending magnetic high associated with the Pueblo Mountains and the Pine Ridge Range. This high probably relates to the Mesozoic intrusive rocks, and is partially interrupted by a northeast-trending feature in the vicinity of the KGRA. The flight line nearest the hot spring recorded a low opposite the hot spring, suggesting that there may be a local magnetic low associated with the spring. This low could reflect destruction of magnetite related to hydrothermal alteration in the vicinity of the spring.
