The satellite view offers a quick glimpse as to whether the MRDS location corresponds to visible mine remains.

Comment (Development): NO APPARENT ACTIVITY IN 1984.
Comment (Deposit): THE MINE IS LOCATED ON A DIABASE DIKE THAT HAS INTRUDED & FAULT BETWEEN RHYOLITE OF THE KOIPATO FORMATION AND LIMESTONE OF THE STAR PEAK FORMATION. TWO SHEAR ZONES OCCURED, ONE ON THE HANGING WALL (BETWEEN DIKE AND RHYOLITE) AND THE OTHER ON THE FOOT WALL (BETWEEN LIMESTONE AND DIKE.) THE DIKE IS COMPOSED OF LABRADORITE, PIGEONITE, OLIVINE, IDDINGSITE AND CHLORITE. STIBNITE OCCURS AS PODS, STREAKS AND CRYSTALS IN QUARTZ PODS, VEINS AND STRINGERS.; MODEL NAME COULD ALSO BE: SIMPLE SB.
Comment (Workings): THE MINE IS DEVELOPED BY TWO ADITS AND AN OPEN CUT THAT CONNECTS WITH THE UPPER ADIT.
Comment (Geology): STIBNITE OCCURS AS PODS, STREAKS, & CRYSTALS IN QUARTZ PODS, VEINS, & STRINGERS IN BOTH SHEAR ZONES.
