Rehabilitated copper prospect in sheared and altered Cambrian volcanics. A compact green rock found here was originally thought to be a new mineral species and given the name Selwynite (of Ulrich). It was eventually found that this material was rather a very fine grained rock, composed mainly of chromian muscovite (fuchsite) and diaspore. Corundum is known to occur with the fuchsite as massive aggregates and nodules. Copper carbonates can also be found as earthy films and micro crystals in joint planes.
