Geologic setting

Geologic description

The country rocks in the area of this occurrence are Lower Paleozoic or possibly Upper Precambrian schists, cut by Upper Cretaceous stocks and Tertiary sills and dikes. Limited information about this deposit suggests that it consists of one or more stibnite-quartz veins. Such a deposit would be of interest chiefly for its gold context.
