Capsule Geology

The Burniere (Lot 4198) is located near the headwaters of Scott Creek, on the east slopes of Mount McKinnon (Comaplix Mountain). Free Gold, galena, chalcopyrite and tetrahedrite occur in a white quartz vein, up to 1.5 metres wide, striking 300 degrees, dipping 80 degrees southwest. The vein cuts a greenstone dike which has been altered to rusty weathering carbonate rock and contains green chromium mica. The dike occurs in phyllites of the Lardeau Group. Gold tends to be concentrated on fracture surfaces associated with the chromium mica. Faults cut the vein, which has been traced for 120 metres.

Grid Resources Ltd. investigated the property in 1983. An 80-centimetre sample assayed 67.5 grams per tonne gold (Assessment Report 12332).
