Mineralization is a silver-bearing vein with quartz and spar (carbonate) in a lens-shaped and massive ore bodies. Ore control was igneous intrusions. Ore concentration process was oxidation at near surface. Alteration was propylitic and sericitic.

Area structures include dikes of rhyolite that trend N15E to N35E. Proterozoic rock is massive and unfoliated.

A 4-stamp mill was erected on the property. Production was some 300 tons of ore yielding $50,000 in Au & Ag (period values).
