Capsule Geology

The Del Rey, 6.5 kilometres southeast of Camborne and east of Mohawk Creek, adjoins the Homestead (082KNW001). 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 northwest striking, east dipping quartz vein, 2 metres wide, cuts the metasediments. The vein contains minor galena and pyrite. Precious metal values are low, the highest being 79 grams per tonne silver and 4.8 grams per tonne gold (Annual Report 1914, page 262).
