Alteration: Oxidation, Silicification

Deposit: Quartz vein mine is located on a group of 4 claims about 1 mi. N W of old contact, in the canyon on the north side of the eastern spur of ellen d. Mountain., 3/4 mi. N of the main contact. Deposit was located in 1887 by t. Gray. Small production was made prior to 1910. Mine was idle until 1929-30, when 600 tons of ore was shipped. 45 tons of this ore netted $12.00/ton. Ore averages 18% pb, 3% zn, 1.5% As and 12 oz/ton ag, with some cu. Deposit is a n-s quartz vein 2-5 ft. Wide. Deposit is opened to a depth of 150 feet (schrader, 1935, p 30-1). ; info.src : 1 pub lit

Deposit type: Skarn Zn-Pb

Development: 4 claims. Small production prior to 1910; mine idle until 1929-30 when 600 tons ore were shipped, of which 45 tons netted $12.00/ton. Ore averages 18% pb, 3% zn, 1.5% as, 12 oz/t ag, with some cu.

Geology: N-s trending alaskite porphyry dikes also cut the property. The two or more e- W trending veins are more or less associated with porphyry dikes or other intrusions, near which there is a reported improvement in quality and quanity of the ore. Mineralization seems to be by replacement in a fault breccia. The principal vein is 3 feet wide and contains chiefly cerusite ore, which carries up to 92 oz/ton ag. Au occurs in the binoxide ore of the smaller vein and averages but $4 to the ton (schrader, 1912, p 134).

Siliciclastic Overlap Assemblage - Conglomerate, sandstone, siltstone, and limestone

Age: Phanerozoic (251.902 - 315.2 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Antler Peak Limestone; Highway Limestone; Battle Conglomerate; Etchart Limestone; Brock Canyon Formation; Strathearn Formation

Description: Unit represents rocks that are stratigraphic sequences that include both Lower Permian and Pennsylvanian rocks, and also sections that have not been broken out regionally into younger and older Permian and Pennsylvanian units. The Antler sequence (Roberts, 1964) rocks are present in Humboldt and Lander Counties and include the Antler Peak Limestone, the Highway Limestone, the Battle Formation or Battle Conglomerate, and the Etchart Limestone. The Brock Canyon Formation of Permian or Pennsylvanian age is in the Cortez Mountains in Eureka County and the siliciclastic and carbonate Strathearn Formation is exposed in Elko County (Theodore, Moring, and others, 2003). Scattered remnants of conglomerate, sandstone, siltstone, and limestone in Nye County, and unnamed limestone and dolomite in Elko County are also included. In the northern Hot Creek Range in Nye County, PIPacl is faulted with lower Paleozoic Carbonate shelf sequence rocks. Additionally, Early Triassic fossils in the area have caused reassignment of some of the rocks to the Candelaria Formation (TRcl). In the Pancake Range, PIPacl lies on the Ely Limestone (IPMbc). In the Toquima Range, the Pennsylvanian Wildcat Peak Formation lies unconformably on Slope assemblage rocks (DOts). In the Monitor Range and in Lander County, this unit lies unconformably on the lower Paleozoic Basin assemblage rocks (DCs). At Battle Mountain the Antler sequence lies unconformably on both the Harmony Formation, which is the Dutch Flat terrane (DF), and the Valmy Formation of Basin assemblage unit DCs. At Edna Mountain near Golconda and in the Osgood Mountains it lies unconformably on Cambrian and Late Proterozoic quartzite (CZq) and Cambrian phyllite and shale (Ctd) of the Nolan belt, as well as on units of the Basin and Slope assemblages (DCs, DOts). In the Cortez Mountains of northern Eureka County, it lies unconformably on Basin and Slope assemblage rocks (DCs, DOts). In the Adobe Range and the Sulphur Spring Range, it lies unconformably on Pennsylvanian and Mississippian Foreland basin rocks (IPMcl) (Trexler, Cashman, and others, 2004). In northern Elko County in the Bull Run and Copper Mountains, it lies unconformably on strongly deformed Ordovician to Cambrian rocks of the Nolan belt (OCtd). In the Snake Mountains and the HD Range, the Pennsylvanian Quilici Formation lies unconformably on the Basin and Slope assemblages (DCs, DOts, Ss) and is unconformably overlain by the Permian Siliciclastic overlap assemblage rocks (Pacl). In far northeastern Nevada, upper Paleozoic rocks around Contact are very poorly known, but are similar to the Siliciclastic overlap assemblage rocks recognized in the HD range, and are thus included in this group.
