Information leading to the delineation of this focus area

Basis for focus area MRDS dep_ids: 10267346 (Levant prospect), 10169844 (Carmel antimony prospect). Occurrences in the Vassalboro Formation. Selected the two points in MRDS and created a buffer. See Hussey and others (1958) and Morrill and Hinckley (1959).
Identified resources Unknown.
Production Unknown.
Status Unknown.
Estimated resources Unknown.
Geologic maps Griffin (1971b, 1976a), scale 1:62,500.
Geophysical data Inadequate Rank 5 aeromagnetic and aeroradiometric coverage.
Favorable rocks and structures Vassalboro Formation and quartz veins within (Hussey and others, 1958).
Deposits Levant prospect (MRDS dep_id: 10267346), Carmel antimony prospect (MRDS dep_id: 10169844).
Evidence from mineral occurrences MRDS; potential from mineral system/deposit type.
Geochemical evidence Favorable mineralogy.
Geophysical evidence Unknown.
Evidence from other sources See King and Foord (1994).
Comments Carmel deposit is a quartz vein that strikes north-northeast, dips vertical (Hussey and others, 1958). Geological setting is similar to that of world's largest Sb deposit at Xikuangshan, South China (Seal and others, 2017; Zhang and others, 2019).
Cover thickness and description Variable limited cover and glacial cover estimated at less than 2-50 m.

New data needs Geologic mapping at 1:24,000 scale, geophysics.
Geologic mapping and modeling needs Detailed 1:24,000 scale mapping.
Geophysical survey and modeling needs High resolution aeromagnetic and aeroradiometric data can assist with framework geology such as structural features and contacts.
Digital elevation data needs Lidar adequate.
