Geological Summary
The claims area is underlain by Late Proterozoic-Cambrian argillite, argillaceous quartzite and liemstone that have been folded into two tight northerly trending anticlines with an intervening syncline. Gold-quartz veins with minor sulphides occur in northeasterly trending faults where they intersect certain stratigraphic units (notably Upper Navada and Upper Nugget quartzite) near the crest of the western anticline and western limb of the eastern anticline.
