Classic porphyry copper geochemical and geophysical signature; moderate associated copper anomaly. Potential for supergene enrichment blanket. A 1.5-sq. km leached cap consisting of silicified, sericitized intermediate tuffs containing moderate to intense quartz-limonite stockwork and veinlet fillings, associated with a strong soil and rock-chip Mo anomaly. Sulfides are entirely oxidized within the leach cap, and limonite is locally characterized by hematite boxwork or relief limonite, characteristic evidence of leached caps with several cycles of enrichment. The surrounding propylitically-altered rocks are characterized by high Zn-Pb-Mn (Ag-Au) values in both soil and rock samples, forming a classic porphyry-related zoning pattern.
