Capsule Geology

The Three Hills property is located 8 kilometres south of South Hazelton, on the west side of Rocher Deboule Mountain, about 600 metres east of Highway 16.

The property is underlain by hornfelsed argillite of the Lower Cretaceous Kitsumkalum shale, an informal subdivision of the Skeena Group, and feldspar porphyry. The rocks strike 035 degrees and dip 40 degrees northwest. Joints, which strike between 075 and 090 degrees and dip 60 degrees north, contain stringers of quartz and chalcopyrite.

A 3-metre chip sample from one of the better-looking trenches assayed 0.61 per cent copper, trace silver and trace gold (Bulletin 43, page 69).
