Walker Lane structural and metallogenic domain.
Gold mineralization has been identified at numerous locations throughout the property, primarily in the form of quartz veins up to 20cm wide which assay in grab sample from 0 to 79 g/t (ppm) gold. The veins occur in wide (up to 30m) zones of strong argillic alteration over a NE strike distance of more than two kilometers. Most of the veins dip steeply to the southeast. Andesites, basalts and rhyolites of the Miocene Alta and Old Gregory Formation underlie most of the property.
