Geologic setting

Geologic description

This site is the near the center of a block of four lode claims staked in 1977 and active through 1978 (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1980). The site was examined by Still and others (2002) who found a 0.15-foot thick band of pyrite along the foliation of sericite schist. Samples contained up to 187 parts per billion gold. The rocks in the area are part of a Mesozoic phyllite and slate unit (Brew, 1997).
