~350 pegmatites
Deposit: Autunite along fault contact of a beryl-bearing pegmatite dike cutting granite autunite is reported along a north-trending vertical fault which form the west contact of a 2.5-ft to 3-ft thick beryl - bearing pegmatite dike. Which cuts biotite muscovite granite of hamson pass stock and nearly quartzites and schist. Pegmatites of the dawley canyon area contain quartz, albite, oligoclase, microcline, pertsite, muscovite, biotite, beryl, ganet, tourmaline, speculacite, apatite, phlogopite, columbite-tantalite, autunite, andulusite, sillimanite, adularia and phenakite (garsite, tts) ; info.src : 1 pub lit
