Geologic setting

Geologic description

This gold-bearing stream drains Sugarloaf Mountain and nearby highlands which are are underlain mostly by Lower Tertiary andesitic and dacitic lava flows and breccias. The Tertiary rocks are intruded or overlain by minor basaltic plugs, dikes, and flows (Riehle and others, 1993). Activity at this occurrence seems to be limited to claim staking and minor exploration. Several blocks of claims, denoted as Nos. 1 and 2 were filed in 1978-1984.
