In green carbonate rock, sheared syenite, volcanic rocks, talc-chlorite schist
Gold mine - produced 320 tons of gold to 1983, mine has been worked to a depth of 5000 feet.



Development of the property began in 1907 but it did not go into full production until 1938 after Kerr-Addison Mines acquired the property. In 1987 Golden Shield Resources bought the property from Kerr-Addison, followed by Deak Resources in 1989, and AJ Perron Gold Corp. in 1994. The mine closed down in 1996. Total production was about 10.5 million Oz. of gold.
