Right--Folks attending a field trip to the Great Basin district find welcomed shade from an exposure of the lower Ordovician Wah Wah Limestone third-oldest member of the Pogonip Group in western Millard County, Utah, a number of miles east of the eastern border of White Pine County, Nevada. Silicified trilobites, algae-sponge patch reefs, conodonts a minute feeding apparatus, unrelated to modern jaws, from an extinct eel-like organism--seen only in the insoluble residues of carbonates dissolved in a dilute solution of acetic or formic acid , graptolites, gastropods, brachiopods, solitary sponges, nautiloid cephalopods, and cystoid echinoderms constitute members of a large and diverse fossil assemblage from the Wah Wah.

The Fillmore Formation is the second-oldest geologic rock unit of the Pogonip Group, yielding such invertebrate animal groups as graptolites, trilobites, brachiopods, conodonts, gastropods, echinoderms, cephalopods, and occasional lenticular algae-sponge patch reefs.

The House yields conodonts minute parts of a unique feeding apparatus, unrelated to modern jaws, from an extinct lamprey eel-like animal , in addition to ledges of silicified replaced by the mineral silicon dioxide trilobites and brachiopods.

The Dunderberg Shale produces a really huge fauna of trilobites. Photograph courtesy Richard Baker; I edited and processed the image through photoshop. Left--The dirt trail just right of center leads to a fossil brachiopod bonanza in the lower to middle Devonian Nevada Formation, White Pine County, Nevada. Right--One turns right on the dirt path up ahead to travel to an especially prolific fossil-yielding district in the middle to upper Devonian Guilmette Formation, White Pine County, Nevada.

Right--The dirt path at right up ahead, in White Pine County, Nevada, leads northward through stupendous Great Basin isolation to the exact spot where my father camped while conducting his Summer Field Camp course mapping in geological detail a specific portion of geographic quadrangle to complete requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Southern California.

He also went on to gain a Master of Science degree in engineering geology from the University of Southern California. Hamilton Ghost Town. I edited and processed the images with photoshop.

In late prospectors discovered rich silver ore bodies on Treasure Hill, but in quick time they proved to be shallow mineral reserves subject to rapid exploitation. By the end of some 10, adventurers had flocked to the district--most suffering through the typically severe winter conditions of eastern Nevada in hastily and poorly constructed mud huts, dugouts, houses of rough timber, and cotton tents. Water, timber, land, and mineral rights were all claimed, sold, and re-claimed many times over in a delirium of inflated speculation.

Give the planners some credit, though. Before even a single child had appeared in Hamilton, citizens had already organized a school district complete with an elected board of trustees and a school site. Approximately 20, folks had rushed in.

The downtown district featured saloons, 59 general stores, dozens of lawyers, doctors, churches, fraternal orders, fire companies, banks, jewelers, theaters, miners' union, skating rinks, auction houses, breweries, a soda factory, gunsmiths, pawnbrokers, express facilities, and even a daily paper--the Daily Inland Impire. During the flush times, Hamilton had incorporated mining companies, with stocks valued at over 70 million dollars.

But the boom subsided quickly. A census conducted in showed that Hamilton's population had dropped to 6, A primary explanation for the sudden decrease was a local depression precipitated by uncertainty over the future of mining development.

Hamilton's merchants also began to move out en mass. Still, Hamilton hung on for several additional years, even managing to survive the devastating fires of and Eventually, though, when Hamilton lost the county seat to Ely in , the end was in sight. A minor resurgence of mineral interest in brought in a few hundred people, but the mini-boom went bust in a hurry and Hamilton returned to the ghosts.

Left--Specimens marked by letter A are crocodilian scutes; letters B and C denote well preserved crocodilian teeth--all from from the lower Cretaceous Newark Canyon Formation, Eureka County, Nevada, a number of miles from the western border of White Pine County, Nevada.

Right--Line drawings of bellerophon marine gastropods from the middle Permian Arcturus Formation, White Pine County, Nevada, assigned to the genus-species Euphemitopsis subpapillosa. Photograph courtesy Raymond L. Knight; I edited and processed the image with photoshop. Specimens: Fusulinella divexa ; Triticites secalicus oryziformis ; and Schwagerina guembel i; Schwagerina medullaris.

Specimens: 1 and Parafusulina superlata ; 2,3 and Parafusulina sublinearis ; 5 and Parafusulina splendens. Lower to middle Permian Reipetown Formation. Left--Conodonts minute tooth to jaw-like structures, unrelated to modern jaws, that served as a unique food-gathering apparatus in an extinct lamprey eel-like animal from the lower to middle Permian Reipetown Formation formerly called the Rib Hill Sandstone , White Pine County, Nevada.

Specimens: Anchignanthodus minutes ; Anchignanthodus typicalis ; New genus; Idiognanthodus ellisoni ; Neogondolella biselli ; Sweetognanthus whitei. Right--Conodonts minute tooth to jaw-like structures, unrelated to modern jaws, that served as a unique food-gathering apparatus in an extinct lamprey eel-like animal from the lower Permian Reipe Spring Limestone, White Pine County, Nevada.

Specimens: Ozarkodinid element; Adetognathus gigantus ; Gondolella bella ; Gnathodus roundyi. Lower to middle Pennsylvanian Ely Limestone. Left-- A pedicle view of the brachiopod Linoproductus. The specimen happens to represent my earliest exposure to fossil brachiopods. My father collected it from the lower to middle Pennsylvanian Ely Limestone during his summer field mapping project in White Pine County, Nevada, the last of many courses he completed to successfully attain a Bachelor Of Science Degree in geology from the University of Southern California he went on to specialize in engineering geology, with a Master of Science degree in engineering geology from the University of Southern California , and then gave it to me upon returning when I was a youngster.

This particular Linoproductus came from low in the Ely section, near the contact with the underlying upper Mississippian Diamond Peak Formation, so the brach is certainly early Pennsylvanian in geologic age. It has been silicified, by the way, replaced by silicon dioxide, lending to it a nice silvery sheen. Genus-species is Cryptacanthia savagei.
