Geologic setting

Geologic description

The general area is underlain mainly by Silurian and Devonian graywacke and argillite and Middle Devonian carbonate, clastic and volcanic rocks (MacKevett and others, 1971; Brew and others, 1978). The country rocks at this prospect are Silurian graywacke and Devonian and Silurian greenstone intruded by small bodies of Cretaceous quartz monzonite and syenite (Clough and Redman, 1989). The U.S. Bureau of Mines sampled a quartz vein at this site that contained 17,000 ppm zinc and 1,400 ppm lead (Clough and Redman, 1989).
