Structure: Northside Of Anticline.

Geology: Lenses of ferruginous chert with borders of copper minerals, veinlets and irregular masses near the chert lenses cobalt oxide replaces wall rock dolomite outward from the fractures. Two groups of explorations explore an iron stained breccia zone w/cherty lead carbonate, some parts altered to plumbojarosite. Pyromorphite also present.

Ore(s): Shear Zone
