Geologic setting

Geologic description

By 1912, a short adit had been driven on a north-south trending shear zone which contained arsenopyrite and stibnite (Smith, 1913; B 525). A shallow winze was sunk from the tunnel but the prospect was partially filled with water in 1912. The shear reportedly contained abundant gold; however, no production was known from the prospect.
