Gold porphyry deposit in middle Miocene Javorie stratovolcano. Initial resource estimate (not thoroughly characterized): 42 Mt at 0.8 g/t Au. Gold-pyrite in quartz veins stockworks in hydrothermally altered diorite intrusion; coeval andesitic volcanic rocks. May overlie porphyry gold-copper system at depth, but gold and silver are the only potentially economic commodities determined to date. Location is approximate. Ag, Cu, Pb and Zn values are elevated but are neither economic nor at levels which may affect gold extraction or be possible environmental pollutants.
