Field investigation and sporadic drilling indicate greater kaolin clay reserves at Mesa-Alta than previously suspected. In fact, high-grade kaolin clay has been found at several different localities in the Mesa Alta area but topography, poor outcrops, and heavy forest cover prevent accurate determination of reserves. Geology of the area is suggestive of innumerable pockets and lenses of high-quality kaolin clay. It is conjectural if such occurrences can be discovered and economically mined in commercial quantity and quality.
