Capsule Geology

A 5.5 to 7.3 metre wide quartz-albite dyke trending 075 degrees and dipping 75 degrees north occurs in granodiorite of the Cretaceous to Tertiary Coast Plutonic Complex. Quartz veins, 0.3 to 2 metres wide, occur intermittently along both contacts of the dyke for 700 metres and a vertical depth of 180 metres. Minerals observed in the quartz veins include pyrite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, argentite, galena, arsenopyrite, bornite, covellite and gold.

A 1.2 metre sample from the bottom of a shaft assayed 9.3 grams per tonne gold, 61.7 grams per tonne silver, and 1.8 per cent copper (Minister of Mines Annual Report 1918). A 0.4 metre adit sample assayed 13.0 grams per tonne gold and 361.4 grams per tonne silver (Geological Survey of Canada Memoir 205). A 25.4 kilogram sample of ore sent for testing assayed 27.9 grams per tonne gold, 624.7 grams per tonne silver, 0.64 per cent copper, 8.16 per cent lead and 3.15 per cent zinc (Geological Survey of Canada Memoir 329).

In August 1983, a report by S. Reamsbottom suggested that the property contains reserves of approximately 181,440 tonnes grading about 7.5 grams per tonne gold and 17.1 grams per tonne silver (George Cross Newsletter Nov.13, 1984).
