Geologic setting

Geologic description

An 8-foot-deep shaft and a 60-foot-long adit explore discontinuous stibnite lenses and stringers up to 1-foot wide in contorted mica schist (Anderson, 1947). Some stibnite is described as forming tiny stringers and pockets in the folds of the schist. Bedrock in the area is part of a lower Paleozoic metasedimentary assemblage (Till and others, 1986).
