Geologic setting

Geologic description

A lode claim was staked in 1956 schist of the Haley Creek terrane at this locality (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1980; Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-B] ; Winkler, Silberman, and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-A]).
Geologic map unit (-145.029198135938, 61.5255159869965)
Mineral deposit model Low-sulfide Au-quartz veins? (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 36a)
Mineral deposit model number 36a?
Age of mineralization Schist of the Haley Creek terrane was probably metamorphosed in the mid-Cretaceous (Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-A]). Veins that cross cut this schist are probably Late Cretaceous or Tertiary in age.
