Mineralization is an irregular ore body. The ore zone is 121.92 meters long and 3.05 meters wide, strikes N65E and dips 60NW. The higher grade ore was localized along the footwall next to the quartzite at the diabase contact, in short irregular strands ranging from 1 to 3 feet in width. Parallel and interlacing seams and stringers of manganese mineral separated by altered dibase occupied the footwall.

Workings include exploratory openings, consisting largely of bulldozer trenching and stripping, in several scattered areas.
