|^^ @PUSClFER Yep, this was identified long time ago here and the new shot released in PlayStation blog and then by R* just confirmed it.|
The mountain you marked is known as Alamo here, because it is located to the north near the Alamo sea. You can see it in the Fido's and GTAKiwi's maps in the 1st post of this thread. Also check out the links to the other important information in this thread http://www.gtaforums...st&p=1062637126
You don't happen to have the source of Rockstar confirming it?
Confirming what? I do not think Rockstar have a time or interest in confirming the correctness of the maps created here. The only name of mountain confirmed by R* via press-people is Josiah which is likely the mountain known as Zancudo here, because, like in the Alamo case, it is located near the Zancudo river. The name of the Alamo Sea is also confirmed. GTAKiwi's map was confirmed by CVG guys like a sufficiently accurate but now we know that guys know even less than we here.
UPD: the only thing I know R* confirmed about the screen shots is that they did not cut that mountain with hikers in the 1st trailer, which is likely the north face of Alamo mt.
maybe my sentence about screen shot and confirmation was not clear. I meant that it was confirmed by the screen shot that was released by Sony after E3 press-conference and than released by Rockstar
via the V's official site and newswire.
UPDATE2: Here I made 2 panoramas of the desert area, it is all clear about the first one, but the questions rises again and again about the airstrip so I made this pan and marked peaks, lettering is the same as in GTAKiwi's map.

So we have Vinewood hills to the left and Zancudo mountain to the right:
