Geological Summary The claims are underlain by Mesozoic arenaceous and tuffaceous units that are cut by a large dyke-like orthoclase porphyry. Bleaching, potassic alteration (K-spar, sericite) and silicification are extensively developed adjacent to the porphyry. High grade gold mineralization occurs within steeply dipping quartz-carbonate-pyrite, shear-vein systems that cut the altered arkoses and lithic wackes.
