|Location and accuracy||The Stone Lode prospect is located at an elevation of 1,250 feet (381 m) in Section 16, T. 27 S., R. 21 E., of the Kateel River Meridian. The reporter visited the site in 1989 and 1996.|
Geologic descriptionThe Stone Lode prospect is a poorly known, but promising gold prospect in skarn near a limestone/monzonite contact; it is geologically very similar to Nixon Fork Mine (MD062). Mineralization consists of garnet-rich and wollastonite-idocrase-epidote skarn that replaces an Ordovician limestone near the margin of a small monzonite body that is currently undated.
