use r.mapcalc as follows to create a new map containing only the 
range you're interested in:

r.mapcalc newmap=if((sourcemap>-50),sourcemap,NULL)

If you really want a MASK (case sensitive):

r.mapcalc MASK=if(sourcemap>-50)

(be sure to drop it afterwards or you may see spooky results
(g.remove rast=MASK))

clear skies,
