A Cu occurrence/prospect with underground workings located in sec. 28, T14S, R12E.
Mineralization is ore in a fault zone 1 meter wide. It strikes N30W and dips 63E (?). The host rock is arkose. Alteration includes quartz-sericite-pyrite, argillitic, and pyrrhotite-pyrite gossan. An associated rock unit is quartz monzonite.
The fault zone (above) has argillic alteration; elsewhere it appears to be quartz-sericite alteration. The fault zone has abundant limonite stain and scattered Cu silicate on fractures. All workings are within about 100 meters on or near a NW-SE trend - the same fault as at prospect 101-6. All workings have limonite stain and limonite on fractures, and some Cu silicate on fractures. Locally soft, porous limonite plus gypsum gossan.
Workings include a tunnel, shaft, pit and bulldozer trench.
