Geologic setting

Geologic description

Stream flowing through Quaternary surficial deposits. Float lithologies include granite, greenstone breccia, dike, argillite, and some hematite. Concentrates contain traces of magnetite, pyrite, zircon, and galena. Assays indicate 125 ppm Zn and 5 ppm Mo (Jasper, 1967).
