|Location and accuracy||Occurrence is situated on a prominent, isolated knob about one half mile (0.8 km) east of Sunrise Creek at an elevation of 1,100 feet (335 m) in Section 12, T. 19 S., R. 19 E., of the Kateel River Meridian.|
Geologic descriptionHematite occurs as dark red and black veinlets and as fine botryoidal masses in cavities in brecciated and hydrothermally altered, porphyritic rhyolite, in part of a unit described as rhyolite domes, tuffs and breccia by Patton and others, 1980). Possible dark, oxidized cinnabar also occurs in the veinlets (Patton and Moll, 1983). Three samples contained 0.95 to 3.70 ppm mercury (Patton and Moll, 1983).
