Mineralization is a vein that strikes S.20ºW. and dips about 45ºNW and occurs within a fault zone with granitic porphyry on the hanging wall and schist on the footwall. The vein is a stockwork from 10 to 20 feet wide, of lenticular quartz veins from a few inches to a few feet thick, in schist. Oreshoots appear to occur where the vein flattens and is intersected by traverse fractures. Ore consists of coarse, locally honeycombed to platy, brecciated, white quartz with abundant limonite and hematite. Wall rocks are altered along the vein and are sericitized, silicified and carbonatized. Local rocks are composed of schist intruded by granitic porphyry.
Workings include a 330 foot deep inclined shaft and about 2,000 feet of development work; the main adit is on the 200 level and includes about 600 feet of drifts. The 350 level has about 150 feet of drifts. Ore contains Au:Ag = 4:1 (by weight).
