Geologic setting

Geologic description

The rocks at this occurrence consist mainly of serpentine and limestone. Copper-stained and strongly iron stained rocks occur in float at the site, but copper-bearing bedrock has not been reported (Rose, 1965). The source of the float may be Upper Triassic mafic or ultramafic rocks that occur in the area (Nokleberg and others, 1982).
