An early set of mine and shaft openings into the Franklin orebody, just North of the Buckwheat pit on the West leg of the orebody. The latest shaft, circa 1920, was in the footwall of the orebody. In the early 1990s, this shaft produced the only finds of nickel-cobalt species from the district.

This locality is within the Franklin Mining District.

ID: 3188605
Mesoproterozoic crystalline metamorphic rocks

Age: Mesoproterozoic (1000 - 1600 Ma)

Lithology: Paragneiss; paragneiss

Mesoproterozoic
1000 - 1600 Ma



ID: 2874051
Franklin Marble

Age: Mesoproterozoic (1000 - 1600 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Franklin Marble

Description: White- to light-gray-weathering, white, grayish-white, or, less commonly pinkish-orange, coarse- to locally fine-crystalline calcite marble with accessory amounts of graphite, phlogopite, chondrodite, clinopyroxene, and serpentine. Contains pods and layers of clinopyroxene-garnet skarn, hornblende skarn, and clinopyroxene-rich rock. Thin layers of metaquartzite occur locally. Intruded by the Mount Eve Granite in the Pochuck Mountain area. Franklin Marble is host to the Franklin and Sterling Hill zinc ore bodies; exploited for talc and asbestiform minerals near Easton, Pennsylvania. Subdivided into an upper marble, "Wildcat marble," and a lower marble, "Franklin marble," by New Jersey Zinc Co. geologists (Hague and others, 1956).
