Geological Summary
The Voigt stock, one of the Copper Mountain Intrusions of Late Triassic age, hosts a copper-gold deposit 800 metres long and 2-30 metres wide. This vertical deposit is cut by post-mineral felsite dykes that divide it into a number of lenses. The mineralization is chalcopyrite-pyrite with appreciable specular hematite and minor magnetite. The host structure is a breccia and vein-stockwork. Alteration, consists of potassium feldspar, epidote and calcite.
