Geologic setting

Geologic description

The U.S. Bureau of Mines (1980) reported that lode claims were staked and maintained at this locality from 1971 to 1979. The commodities associated with these claims are copper, barium (barite?), and manganese (Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-B]). The mineralization is within schist of the Liberty Creek terrane (Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-A]).

Age of mineralization Not known; the Fox Creek terrane was probably deformed and metamorphosed in the mid-Cretaceous ( Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-A]).
