|Comment: "An 8 ft vein of quartz cuts red granite and crops out for several hundred feet. The granite is associated with "diorite dikes," schists, and gneiss, all of which are crushed and broken. Locally the quartz outcrop contains malachite and azurite, and some masses of "iron and copper sulphide ores." This prospect is a part of the Portland Group." (Bull. 50, p. 41)|
