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 to 30 metres wide. This vertical deposit is cut by post-mineral felsite dykes that divide it into a number of lenses. The mineralization consists of chalcopyrite and pyrite with appreciable specular hematite and minor magnetite. Host structure is a breccia and vein- stockwork. Alteration consists of potassium-feldspar epidote and calcite.
