Geologic setting

Geologic description

This occurrence consists of bornite in quartz-epidote veinlets in an unstated rock type that is probably similar to the quartz diorite of Tertiary or Cretaceous age at a nearby similar deposit (SD064) (Clark and others, 1970 [OF 70-73]). A sample contained 1,000 parts per million (ppm) copper and 20 ppm silver.
