Kleinkopf and Redden (1975) used a value of 2.43 g/cm3 for topographic gravity corrections in the northern portion of the Black Hills.

Precambrian in the Homestake Mine, Lead, SD

An extensive gravity survey in the Homestake underground, between the 800 and 6950 levels, yielded a mine average value of density of 2.82 g/cm3.   ( R.D. Nutsch, 1989, Subsurface gravity in the Homestake Mine, Lead, South Dakota, M.S. Thesis, University of Idaho, 155 p.)
