Metamorphic rocks from Mt. Moosilauke in north-central New Hampshire were analyzed by X-ray fluorescence and atomic-absorption spectrophotometry for trace amounts of copper, lead, and zinc. Mean content was 89 ppm for copper, 44 ppm for lead, and 92 ppm for zinc. Values for the Devonian Littleton Formation, the dominant rock unit in the area, suggest that it is a metamorphosed shale slightly enriched in copper and lead.
