The mode of occurrence of gold at this locality is in quartz veins within a shear zone striking about S65E that cuts intermediate lava and breccia. The volcanic rocks contain chert-carbonate chemical sediments north and south of the deposit, and some lavas in the vicinity of the No.2 shaft contain silicified zones 1 to 2 m wide that are heavily impregnated with sulphides, probably including arsenopyrite. Underground drilling by Gold Frontier Mines Limited encountered carbonatized volcanic rocks. This north vein west was believed to be structurally continuous over 1000 m.
