Capsule Geology

The Homestead, 5 kilometres southeast of Camborne and east of Mohawk Creek, adjoins the Mohawk (082KNW041). See also the Spider mine (082KNW045).

The area is underlain by metasedimentary rocks of the Lower Paleozoic Lardeau Group, Broadview Formation, which includes medium grey to greenish quartzites, greywackes, carbonaceous phyllites and quartz sericite schist.

A series of well-defined quartz veins, ranging from 1 to 2.4 metres wide, cut the metasediments. The veins strike north northwest and occur from 1370 to 1830 metres in elevation. They contain minor galena and pyrite. Precious metal values are low, the highest being 284 grams per tonne silver and 17 grams per tonne gold (Annual Report 1914, page 262).
