The geology of the Lanigans project area is dominated by greywacke and argillite with interbedded chert, basic marine volcanics and minor limestone with hydrothermal breccia dykes located in the centre of the area. These can range in thickness up to 3 metres and at least two are known to have a strike length in excess of 500 metres. Breccia clasts comprise Waipapa greywacke, argillite and chert together with carbonaceous lake sediments. Matrix material is dominated by quartz and the rocks commonly show evidence of multi-phase brecciation and remobilisation of quartz into cross-cutting veinlets. Sulphides in the breccias comprise 1-3% pyrite as fine disseminations and wispy fracture controlled veinlets together with minor stibnite and arsenopyrite. Silicification and broad zones of argillic and lesser sericitic alteration occur in the host sediments marginal to the dykes. The mineralised breccias and associated quartz veins are geochemically anomalous in gold, silver, arsenic and antimony.
