|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is about 150 feet northeast of hill 3420 in the east-central Beaver Mountains. It is about 0.5 mile northeast of the center of section 13, T. 32 N., R. 41 W., of the Seward Meridian.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of a stockworks of thin quartz-tourmaline-axinite-sulfide veins in altered volcanic flows adjacent to the 70.9 Ma, Beaver Mountains stock (Bundtzen and Laird, 1982; Miller and Bundtzen, 1994). No size or other information or structural information is available. Grab samples of the mineralization collected by Battle Mountain Mining Company contained up 435 parts per billion (ppb) gold, 185.1 parts per million (ppm) silver, 3,346 ppm copper, 2.54 percent lead, 1.05 percent zinc, more than 2,000 ppm arsenic, 509 ppm antimony, and 94 ppm tin (Szumigala, 1993).
