The Tiger group is located near the head of Tiger Canyon, approximately 1.25 miles north of Olinghouse (Hill, 1911, p. 105). The workings, consisting of a 600-foot tunnel and a shaft 150 feet deep with drifts at the 75-and 150-foot levels, explore a N. 30° E. trending mineralized fault zone. Vein quartz with pyrite and chalcopyrite occurs in the fault zone. The fault zone forms the contact between a granodiorite porphyry dike and andesite of the Chloropagus Formation.
