N. Flank Crescent Peak.

Alteration: Supergene Enrichment To At Least 25 M

Tectonics: Basin And Range

Deposit: Stockwork of veins

Deposit type: Polymetallic veins

Development: Economic concentrations of hypogene platinoids are not expected to be found

Geology: Sporadic high pge values are thought due to supergene concentration phenomena. Stock underlying crescent peak has been of interest As a porphyry copper exploration target. Country rocks are proterozoic metamorphic rocks

Ore(s): Fracturing Of Host Rocks
