Geologic setting

Geologic description

The Move prospect consists of gold-bearing quartz veins in Mesozoic or Tertiary granitic rocks (MacKevett and Holloway, 1977). The region has been mapped as undifferentiated igneous rocks (Foster, 1970). There was some claim staking in 1976 (Singer and others, 1976), and it is probable that there has been more activity recently.
