A Pb-Cu occurrence/prospect with surface and underground workings located in sec. 32, T13S, R12E, on National Park land.
Mineralization is a vein deposit in a fracture zone with the ore zone at 0.04 meters wide, striking N20W and dipping 40W, hosted in arkose. Cu silicate occurs on fractures locally, and some disseminated malachite. Pyrite is scarce. Minor calcite vein material is also present, but has no sulfides. Ore control was dike-wallrock contact with the vein at a slight angle to the contact. An associated rock unit is plutonic igneous rock.
Workings include an inclined shaft.
