Mineralization is a deposit with a pod-like ore body 5 meters long and 2 meters wide hosted in felsic volcanic rock. This is a magnetite-hematite body which contains some quartz stringers and disseminated chalcopyrite, more or less oxidized to tenorite (?) plus some limonite. Also present is disseminated Cu silicate, malachite, and minor azurite. These same Cu minerals also occur on fractures. Other large magnetite-hematite pods appear in the vicinity, in area about 30 meters by 10 meters. An associated rock unit is quartz monzonite.
Workings include a tunnel and a shaft.
