The Kid 3 prospect is adjacent to the Star (082FSE002) on the west; regional and detailed geology are as described for the Star. On the Kid property, galena, sphalerite and pyrrhotite are disseminated in argillaceous quartzite of the Middle Proterozoic Purcell Supergroup and as lenses in quartz veins. There are also minor amounts of galena and sphalerite as replacements and fracture filling, and in quartz veins. The quartzites are bleached in proximity to the mineralization, assumed to be sericitic alteration.
