Friday Field Photos

For today's Friday Photos, first we have the above stitched-together photo of the Getchell Mine area (MSRMaps location), looking southwest to west towards the northern part of the Osgood Mountains. I was on a recent geology field trip to the area when I took these photos.
A head-frame in the distance near the main Getchell mine buildings. Getchell is about 9 kilometers (5.5 miles) north of Pinson.
And in the foreground, a northeast-trending fault in the Turquoise or Turquoise Ridge pit. Too bad the field trip didn't take us into this pit to look at the fault!
