STUDY AUTHORS: Knight Piésold

Surficial and bedrock geology, geological structure, deposit types, alteration and mineralization based on previous studies, exploration drilling programs, test pits, and aerial photographs are discussed. This information is important to understanding the mining potential and structural stability of the area. Geology and mineralization may also affect water quality, hydrology, and soils.


  • The bedrock in the study area is predominantly Middle and Late Jurassic sedimentary rock of marine origin, with scattered moraine deposits from the Pleistocene and Holocene glaciers.
