Geologic setting

Geologic description

This occurrence is in graphitic argillite (Dashevsky and others, 1986). It is adjacent to or on a regionally extensive, west-northwest-trending contact between greenschist-facies quartz-mica schist and greenschist and amphibolite-facies biotite gneiss and amphibolite, both of probable Paleozoic age. Unidentified disseminated sulfides were noted in bedrock by Foster (1976) during regional mapping of the area. WGM Inc. conducted reconnaissance stream-sediment sampling and float examination in the area in 1976 (Dashevsky and others, 1986). Stream -ediment samples contain 400 to 500 ppm zinc, 0.9 to 1.8 ppm silver, and 15 ppm molybdenum.
