Geological Summary
The claims are underlain by a belt of rocks described by Grove (1971) as the Stewart Complex. The complex consists of an undivided group of southwesterly dipping sedimentary and volcanic rocks of Upper Triassic and Lower Jurassic age, which are intruded by Middle Mesozoic marginal phases of the Coast Plutonic Complex. Mineralization in the area consists of chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena, and pyrite as massive sulphide and quartz-sulphide veins in sedimentary hornfels and pyrometasomatized pyroclastic rocks.
