Geologic setting

Geologic description

The rocks in the vicinity of this prospect are part of a Triassic and/or Jurassic unit that consists of biotite schist and gneiss with some amphibolite, quartzite, phyllite, and hornfels (Loney and others, 1975). The unit is a thermal aureole around a large Tertiary tonalite stock. Little is known about this prospect other than that it was staked for nickel (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002). It is shown by name on a map in Bittenbender and others (1999) but is not listed or described in their report.
