Geologic setting

Geologic description

A number of parallel quartz veins cut granite and carry gold. The granite is also auriferous. The gold in granite is thought to be due to concentration from the brecciated surface portion of the veins. In working a narrow bench placer, it was discovered that the irregular granite bedrock and the adjoining bank contained gold (Chapin, 1914).
