A zeolite occurrence/canyon located 2.2 km (7,100 feet) SSE of Gila Hot Springs, along the East Fork Gila River (distance based on the coordinates of record for the SA Canyon).

Vesicular andesites along the river at the Grapevine Campground area produce very nice zeolites and other minerals. Listed in Tschernich as East Fork.

All zeolites tested, when possible, were Ca dominant.
