Geological Summary Gold and galena occur in the axial portion of a northwesterly trending folded quartz vein that intrudes granodiorite of the Jurassic Nelson Batholith. The vein has an exposed strike length of 25 metres over widths of 10-40 centimetres. The fold plunges at 20 degrees northwest. Well developed barren steeply dipping north-south fractures are a common feature. Weak argillic alteration is limited to the mineralized quartz vein. Several narrow northerly trending lamprophyre dykes intrude the granodiorite.
