Mineralization is a vein deposit with an irregular ore body. Ore control was localization along fissure systems in addition to disseminated ore. Ore concentration was oxidation and enrichment at near surface. Alteration is sericitization and argillization.

Area structures include foliation N20E to N20W, with a steep dip westward. Fissure systems trend N60-75W and N55-70E.
