Geologic setting

Geologic description

The geology in the vicinity of this prospect is not well known. Lathram and others (1965) mapped the rocks as part of the Devonian Retreat Group which consists of schist with marble interbeds. However, more recent work at the Greens Creek Mine (Barnett and Miller, 2003; ARDF JU253) about 10 miles to the north indicates that at least some of the rocks that they mapped as Retreat Group are part of the Triassic Hyd Group that consists of felsic and intermediate volcanic rocks, limestone, slate, chert, and conglomerate. Similarly, it is likely that the rocks at the Pyrola prospect (SI065) about a mile to the north are part of the Triassic Hyd Group. The only information available about this prospect is that one or more claims were staked for copper and silver.
