Comments on the geologic information

  • Geologic Description = Hummel (1962 [MF 248]) identified this locality as an antimony occurence. Stibnite is probably present, as is at least a small amount of gold. The occurrence is within the claim block of the Bulk Gold prospect (NM071). It appears to be in massive marble and near feldspathic rocks, including granitic orthogneiss (Hummel, 1962 [MF 248]; Bundtzen and others, 1994).
  • Age = Probably mid-Cretaceous.
