Capsule Geology

The Ole-Pat occurrence is located southwest of Dupuis Creek and approximately 1.5 kilometres northwest of the north end of Leroy Lake.

The area is underlain by Chataway variety intrusive rocks of the Highland Valley phase of the Upper Triassic to Lower Jurassic Guichon Creek batholith. This unit is medium-grained granodiorite, rich in hornblende, biotite and plagioclase. Northeast of Billy Lake is a large dike swarm area where Bethlehem phase porphyritic dikes intrude Highland Valley phase granodiorites.

The Ole-Pat showing is located in a north trending fault zone which has been traced for 1 kilometre along strike. The fault zone hosts malachite staining and small amounts of chalcopyrite and molybdenite on fracture planes.
