|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 3,100 feet, about 5 miles southeast of VABM Dakli in Zane Hills. The map site is in section 19, T. 11 N., R. 13 E., of the Kateel River Meridian. Cobb (1972, MF-448), location 11, and Miller and Ferrians (1968), figure 3.|
This occurrence consists of molybdenite-bearing, quartz veins that cutJurassic-Cretaceous andesite near the contact with granodiorite of the Cretaceous Zane Hills pluton (Miller and Ferrians, 1968). The quartz veins are up to 2 feet thick. A grab sample from a mineralized vein contained 0.2% Mo.
