Capsule Geology

The Stibnite showing is in and near tension-filling quartz veins and veinlets cutting two felsite dikes up to 3 meters wide and surrounding Upper Triassic Stuhini andesite/basalt flows and lapilli tuffs. Veins contain local concentrations of stibnite and minor native gold. No significant economic tonnage is expected from this zone.

Three dikes up to a few meters across of similar composition cut the mafic volcanic rocks. These contain abundant gash veins dominated by quartz with less carbonate, chlorite, and sulphides. The dikes are thought to be related to the felsic Hope Intrusion, which are thought to be the source of the native gold.

Disseminated to massive stibnite and tetrahedrite-tennantite have been traced for approximately 150 metres. Chip sampling across a felsic dike in the area yielded values of 1.85 grams per tonne gold and 5.4 grams per tonne silver across 0.5 metre (Assessment Report 20933).
