Geologic setting

Geologic description

As described by Wright and Wright (1908), the Frisco prospect was originally part of the Tomboy group of claims (CR181) that was subsequently restaked. The deposit is a quartz vein 12 feet wide that strikes north. The vein contains pyrite and fragments of the chlorite schist and marble host rocks. The vein assayed only a few dollars in gold. A 30-foot vein nearby was too lean to mine. The rocks in the area are part of the Wales Group of Late Proterozoic and Cambrian age (Eberlein and others, 1983; Brew, 1996).
