Geological Overview. The Potrillo Volcanic Field is one of the youngest and mostly southerly fields in New Mexico. The young (~ ka) eastern part of the field (Aden-Afton field) (Hoffer et al, ) consists of several scoria cones, a shield volcano, and maars, as well as some much older basaltic masses such as Black Mountain.

Most placer gold deposits in New Mexico are derived from gold-bearing mineralized areas in Tertiary intrusive rocks, and occur in gravels of alluvial fans, gulches, and rivers adjacent to the source.

A few deposits are derived from gold-bearing Pre- cambrian crystalline or Tertiary volcanic rocks. In addition to all of the natural geologic features and landforms (e.g., canyons, impact craters, and young lava flows) that would serve as training grounds for testing equipment and practicing extravehicular activities, a field of craters within a large flat area of loose volcanic cinders was created to simulate one of the lunar landing areas.
