Geologic setting

Geologic description

Little is known about this prospect other than Herman Kloss reported that a trench across a shear zone 150 to 200 feet thick that contained some copper and nickel oxides (Herbert and Race, 1964; Race and Rose, 1967, Cobb, 1978). The deposit is probably in the Hyd Group of Triassic age (Loney, 1964).
