Summary:

Gold mineralization occurs in the contact zone between Idah Suite (diorite, tonalite) and sediments altered into Murdama. Gold mineralization is associated with quartz veins with minor arsenopyrite and pyrite. These lens-shaped veins are usually rough-grained. The sulphuric minerals are often found in vein margins and underground tonalite rocks of the Idah Suite (630-610 million years). High rates of gold are found in quartz veins (up to approximately 6 grams per ton) in the diorite rock injections.
