Geologic setting

Geologic description

Placer gold was panned from what is locally called Anmer Creek in the 1980s (Redman and others, 1989). There is no record of earlier work. The rocks in this area consist of black phyllite with scattered, concordant quartz veins; it is part of the Cretaceous to Permian metavolcanic unit of Gehrels and Berg (1992).
