No mineral-resource potential was identified during studies of the San Rafael Primitive Area, located at the southern end of the Coast Ranges of California. No petroleum has been produced from the area and there is little promise for the occurrence of energy resources. Limestone occurs in the area but also is found in abundance outside the area.

The area was capturing widespread attention, and two new books — California Condor: Vanishing American by Dick Smith and Bob Easton, and Rock Paintings of the Chumash by Campbell Grant — highlighted the.

The front of the book does give somewhat helpful information in identifying rocks and minerals, such as testing for specific gravity, using scratch tests, and checking cleavage, among other tips, but using this book to help in the collection of rocks and minerals just does not work.

Much better books exist, in much easier-to-use s: associated with mineral resources as they may relate to the Program. Environmental Setting Mineral Resources. Natural mineral deposits are nonrenewable resources that cannot be replaced once they are depleted.

The primary mineral resources within the Los Angeles Basin are rock, gravel, and sand deposits. The highest peaks include Big Pine Mountain (6, ft, 2, m), San Rafael Mountain (6, ft, 2, m) and McKinley Mountain (6, ft, 1, m).
