Geologic setting

Geologic description

Johnson and Karl (1985) map the rocks in the area of this prospect as part of the Freeburn assemblage, a collage of kilometer-scale, fault-bounded, lozenge-shaped blocks of Cretaceous and Cretaceous(?), metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks. The rocks are cut by several northwest-striking, steeply-dipping faults. The only published information about the prospect is that it has been staked for lode gold (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002).
