The area is an old Ag-Pb-Zn mining camp which has never been explored using modern exploration methods.
The geology consists of acid to intermediate volcanics and well bedded meta-sediments.
An old adit and shaft, which have not been mined for some decades, are located just outside the boundary of the western concession block. The adit exposes a 0.5m to 2.5m wide lode of limonitic, brecciated, silicified rock with strongly vuggy sacchariodal quartz, cut by later quartz veins.
On the slope near the adit - and extending into the western concession block - there is abundant scree/float of limonitic silicified/brecciated/quartz veined volcanics and strongly silicified hydrothermal breccia. Float cobbles of limonitic silicified meta-sediment cut by vuggy quartz veins with local box-works after sulphides were observed at several drainage sites.
A first-stage exploration strategy will include:
A program of geological mapping and reconnaissance float and subcrop sampling. Another priority will be the locating, mapping and sampling of old mines and workings within the concession areas.
