Comments

Comment (Location): A VERY POOR ACCESS TO THE AREA BY ANY VEHICLE DUE TO DRIFTING SAND. AN OLD ROAD FROM THE EAST PROVIDED ACCESS TO THE UPPER WORKINGS AND TO THE UPPER AREA IN GENERAL.

Comment (Workings): MAJOR CROSS-CUT ADIT AND SHAFT TRENCHES, AND PROSPECTS. BOTH WORKINGS ARE LONG ENOUGH AND DEEP ENOUGH TO HAVE BEEN CONNECTED AT DEPTH.

Comment (Geology): SEDIMENTS ARE LIMY, AND SHALY. BOTH HAVE BARITE AND SIMILAR BRECCIA AND QUARTZ VEIN MATERIALS ON THEIR DUMPS.
