|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is on the west flank of Red Mountain, at an elevation of about 1,250 feet. It is sample locality 45 of Berryhill (1963) and is approximately located, probably within about 1/4 mile. It is locality 6 of Cobb (1972 [MF 362]; 1980 [OF 80-909]).|
Geologic descriptionBerryhill (1963, sample locality 45) collected a shovel sample of surface materials at this location and determined that the heavy mineral concentrates contained greater than 10 percent chromite and traces of Pt and Au. Augite, hornblende, and olivine were also reported to be present in amounts exceeding 10 percent. This occurrence is on the steeper part of the west flank of Red Mountain, a composite ultramafic pluton containing abundant dunite. The surface materials at this site are expected to be colluvial and to have been derived directly from erosion of the Red Mountain pluton.
