Comments

Comment (Deposit): ON THE TEMPEST FISSURE WHERE INTERSECTED AND OFFSET BY A LATER N10W AND A N50W FISSURE IN CONJUCTION WITH THE ORE. IN THIS DEPOSIT, MOST OF THE ORE OCCURS BETWEEN THE WALLS OF THE FISSURE WITH VERY SMALL MINOR REPLACEMENT AND BEDDED DEPOSITS. A SHAFT 80 FT WEST OF THE INMAN VEIN IS ON A N46W FISSURE, NEARLY VERTICAL, 10-18 INCHES WIDE, CARRYING OXIDIZED COPPER ORE.

Comment (Workings): AN ADIT IS THE ONLY WORKING LISTED (1952), CONNECTING SHAFT, WINZE, STOPES, SEVERAL SMALL SHAFTS WITH STOPES (1924)

Comment (Development): REPORTED TO HAVE PRODUCED SEVERAL HUNDRED TONS OF DIRECT SMELTING ORE HIGH IN CU AND PE WITH ABOUT 10 OZ/T AG, UP TO 15% CU
