Carbonate-hosted Pb-Zn replacement deposits
W-Be-Mo skarn/vein
Porphyry Mo deposits

The blind porphyry molybdenum-tungsten deposit was discovered in the late 1970's, beneath 1500 feet of cover, during drilling by Gulf Minerals. It is located immediately southwest of the Irish Rose mine. Although the ore deposit has many of the characteristics of a Climax type porphyry molybdenum deposit, including the inverted saucer or mushroom cap shape and the pervasive presence of Fluorine, there are other factors that make its classification uncertain. These include the lack of clear association with a cupola like stock and an elevated copper/molybdenum ratio. Various aspects of the deposit are discussed by McLemore, et al (2000), Donahue (2002) and SRK Consulting (2008).
