Approximately 20 mineralized veins have been discovered. The four main quartz vein systems are the Wrinch, Portal, Chisholm and Cole systems. The average width of the veins is 0.9 to 1.2 metres with local increases up to about 4.6 metres. In general the veins occupy northwest striking fractures that cut the volcanics, the microdiorite and the felsite porphyry and the basalt dikes. Chalcopyrite-sphalerite and sphalerite-galena are the two general types of sulphide mineralization occurring in the veins but there are gradations between the two types. Good gold and silver values are generally associated with the chalcopyrite-sphalerite veins. Other sulphide minerals include tetrahedrite, tennantite and pyrite. The gangue is mainly cherty quartz, carbonate minerals such as rhodochrosite and siderite, some barite and rarely pyrobitumen. Local intense alteration of wallrock along veins and fissures has resulted in a mixture of clay and carbonate minerals, some chlorite, minor epidote and disseminated pyrite.
