Geological Summary
The claims are underlain by ultramafic rocks of the Tulameen Ultramafic Complex. Native platinum and gold have been recovered from the Tulameen River, adjacent to the claims. Some of the chromite-rich parts of the ultramafic rocks contain up to 4400 ppb platinum. The present study delineated three platinum-anomalous zones which require detailed study to determine the controls on platinum mineraliztion.
