Geological Summary The Aurum Mine was a small gold producer in the late 1920's to early 1930's. Aurum mineralization is characterized by very coarse native gold. The mineralized zone is contained in an altered, talcose shear fault closely related to the East Hozameen Fault. The Hozameen Fault is a major crustal suture marking the boundary between an ultramafic complex and Triassic andesite and Jurassic Ladner Group metasediments. Numerous silicified altered zones were found with varying amounts of pyrite, arsenopyrite and pyrrhotite assaying up to 0.524 ounces per tonne gold over 1.50 metres.
