|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is located just above treeline between Sheep Creek and the South Fork of Montana Creek, approximately 600 meters northeast of VABM Sunshine. The location is accurate to within 1/4 mile. This is locality 92 of Csejtey and Miller (1978).|
Geologic descriptionPaleozoic(?) greenstone (meta-andesite?) at this occurrence is altered but no sulfides are visible (Csejtey and Miller, 1978). A sample of greenstone contains 2 parts per million silver, 100 parts per million cobalt, 300 parts per million copper, 100 parts per million nickel, and 300 parts per million zinc (Miller and others, 1978).
