Capsule Geology

The area is underlain by northwest striking, easterly dipping, isoclinally folded sediments and metasediments of the Badshot and Hamill Formations.

The Hamill Formation contains quartzites, quartz-sericite, chlorite-sericite, and graphitic quartz phyllites. The Badshot Formation consists of banded limestones.

A mineralized zone in the Hamill quartzite contains oxidized and leached pyrite lenses with jarosite staining and sericite alteration. A second zone, several hundred metres northeast of the first zone, contains erratic sulphide pods of tetrahedrite, galena, pyrite, sphalerite, malachite, azurite, scorodite, and jarosite occupying shear zones within the Badshot limestone. Soil and rock samples taken from these zones indicate anomalous values of gold, silver, lead, zinc, and copper.

Reported without year or company given, chip sampling of the Roseberry occurrence returned values of 15.03 grams per tonne gold and 37.4 grams per tonne silver across 0.3 metre (Makepeace, D. (2007-05-04): Technical Report for Merit Mining Corp. of J & L Property).
