Geologic setting

Geologic description

The rocks in the general area are mainly Ordovician and Devonian to Triassic clastic units, mafic-intermediate volcanic rocks, and subordinate limestone. The bedded rocks are intruded and locally metamorphosed by Cretaceous granodiorite (Gehrels and Berg, 1994). Wells and others (1986) show a copper-lead-zinc lode claim at this site which was active in 1908. No other information is available.
