This 1:24,000-scale geologic map of the Kelly Creek area in Humboldt, Elko, and Lander counties, Nevada contains descriptions of 43 geologic units and one cross section in two plates. Accompanying text includes field observations and inferences, full unit descriptions, and references. This geologic map covers the Kelly Creek (Clover) valley, part of the Dry Hills, the western edge of the Snowstorm Mountains, and the northern part of the Red House Flat area. It updates a previous open-file report (OF2005-01), and now includes the Twin Creeks Mine area.

Plate 1 covers all of these two 1:24,000-scale quadrangles: Dry Hills South and The Knolls, and parts of these quadrangles: Dry Hills North, Kenny Creek (southern portions), Red House Flat East, and Elevenmile Well (far northern portions).

Plate 2 covers most of these two 1:24,000-scale quadrangles: Red House Flat East and Elevenmile Well and the northern third of Knight and Hot Pot quadrangles.
