Commodity: Analytical data from harrer and kelly, 1963

Deposit: Discovery year: 1880's deposits consist of large, irregular to roughly tabular bodies of tactite composed chiefly of magnetite, garnet and pyroxene. Tactite includes three distinct varieties, a dark-colored magnetite-fluorite-helvite ribbon rock, a lighter-colored silicate-rich ribbon rock, and a fluorite-rich massive tactite. The property consists of one patented claim, 6 claims on state land and 27 unpatented claims. This record contains data from record d001317 by james e. Elliott which has been deleted from mrds. ; info.src : 1 pub lit; 2 unpub rept

Development: Usbm performed extensive exploration, mapping and sampling during 1942-1943 including trenches totaling 5100 ft in length, 975 ft of diamond drilling, and 670 ft of underground exploration by adits, shafts and raises.

Geology: For general geology see sierra cuchillo district

Rock formation(s): Magdalena Group


Ore(s): Sedimentary Rocks Were Intruded By Igneous Masses Which Replaced Favorable Rock Types By Contact Metasomatism And Altered Other Sedimentary Rocks By Simple Metamorphism.
