Geologic setting

Geologic description

The country rocks in the area of this prospect are Devonian metavolcanic schist and phyllite. Limited published information suggests that the deposit consists of silver-bearing galena-sphalerite-calcite-quartz veins in the metamorphic rocks. This description is largely inferred from Berg and Cobb's (1967) description of silver-rich lead-zinc veins in the Kantishna district.
