Geologic setting

Geologic description

Johnson and Karl (1985) map the rocks in the area of this prospect as part of a batholith of Cretaceous or Jurassic quartz diorite. The rocks are cut by numerous faults, the most prominent of which is the Peril Strait Fault, a regional-scale, northwest-striking, steeply-dipping fault whose trace is just northeast of the prospect. The only published information about the prospect is that it has been staked for gold and silver (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002).
