Geologic setting

Geologic description

Christie (1974) reports a 3,000 by 3,000+ ft (900 by 900+ m), elongate to the northeast, color anomaly in volcanic rocks, mainly breccia and flows(?). His interpretation was that alteration was solfataric. No signs of fracture-controlled mineralization, epidote, or intrusive rocks.
Geologic map unit (-162.018715646318, 55.1324335112887)
Mineral deposit model Epithermal gold vein, polymetallic vein
Mineral deposit model number 22c, 25
Age of mineralization Pliocene or younger
Alteration of deposit Possibly propylitic, based on presence of chlorite. Bleaching reported. Possible silicification? Solfataric(?).

Production and reserves

Workings or exploration Brief reconnaissance geologic mapping and collection of a few silt samples reported by Christie (1974). Silver to 1.4 ppm and zinc to 99 ppm; otherwise background levels for copper, molybdenum, and gold.
Indication of production None
