The Ore Chimney property consists of a gold-silver-copper-lead-zinc-bearing quartz vein system hosted by sheared hornblende-botite-garnet schist near the contact between mafic metavolcanics of the Tudor Formation and unconformably overlying quartz and quartz-pebble conglomerate of the Bishop Corners Formation, Flinton Group (Dillon 1985). The Ore Chimney Vein system is from 1 to 4 feet wide, consisting of narrow, discontinuous quartz stringers within a biotite schist.
Operations conducted intermittently from 1908to 1932. Underground operations reached 161 m.
