Small silver-lead deposits are reported in limestone in the King Salmon Valley. The deposits are hosted by the Upper Triassic Sinwa Formation limestone, located along the north side of the King Salmon thrust fault. The limestone has served as a relatively weak plane, along which thrust faulting, accompanied by intense local folding, has occurred.
