Geologic setting

Geologic description

This prospect is associated with a small Cretaceous granitic stock that makes up the center of San Juan Bautista island. The stock intrudes Devonian graywacke, mudstone, and siltstone of the Port Refugio Formation, which crops out along the entire coastline of the island (Eberlein and others, 1983; Brew, 1996). The occurrence consists of minor pyrite and chalcopyrite disseminated in diorite (Clark and others, 1970 [OF 418]).
