Approximately 65% of the gold mineralization occurs in hydrothermally altered and micro-veined quartzite interlayered beds of mica schist in the Pre-Cambrian McCoy Creek group. Most of the gold mineralization in the quartzite appears to be stratiform and varies from 20-100 feet in thickness and following a major thrust structure – representing the conduit for gold fluids. The Cambrian Lincoln Peak limestone overlies the Precambrian McCoy Creek group and is in the thrust fault contact with the Precambrian McCoy Creek group.

It is thought that at least some
