Geologic setting

Geologic description

The general area of the Peaches prospect is underlain by Lower
Paleozoic or possibly Upper Precambrian schists cut by Late Cretaceous stocks and Tertiary sills and dikes. The deposit is in schist, and consists of stratiform layers of massive sulfides, chiefly galena and sphalerite, accompanied by quartz and sericite (Inmet Mining, oral communication, 1999).
Geologic map unit (-148.012327721821, 63.9295603524941)
Mineral deposit model Kuroko massive sulfide (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 28a)
Mineral deposit model number 28a
Age of mineralization Mineralization probably is syngenetic with the Lower Paleozoic or Upper Precambrian host rocks.
