Comments

Comment (Commodity): A 1979 field examination and sample analyses indicated anomalous, but low grade, beryllium concentrations. (Sunshine files, 1979

Comment (Geology): Beryllium occurs in pegmatites, veins, and granite and greisen bodies on the south and SW slopes of Mount Antero. To date, these deposits are of interest only to gem and mineral collectors.

Comment (Location): Prospect is high (13,800 ft) on the south ridge of Mount Antero, mostly in the SE/4 sec. 13, T 51 N, R 6 E.
