Shenon and Ross make comprehensive study of unique landslide region
Thunder mountain and surrounding area-the region of towering peaks and remarkable geological formations approximately 200 miles southeast of Lewiston which was the scene of Idaho's last great gold rush in 1896-contains mineral possibilities which may some day, when accessible by cheaper transportation, be sufficient for commercial exploitation on a large scale, according to an exhaustive report of studies of the region by P. J. Shenon and C. P. Ross of the U. S. geological survey, just published by the Idaho bureau of mines and geology.
