Sediment-hosted stratiform copper-silver mineralization is common in the Middle Creston strata that lie within the property is a correlative lithostratigraphic unit of the Ravalli Group of western Montana. The Ravalli Group hosts the largest sediment-hosted stratiform copper-silver deposits of the Belt-Purcell Supergroup. Sediment-hosted stratiform copper deposits are important sources of copper, cobalt, and silver and, in recent years, have accounted for 15 to 23% of global copper production, second only to porphyry copper and related deposits.
Previous work programs within the property and surrounding area identify areas of anomalous geochemistry (rock, soils, silts), and favorable geology (lithologies, alteration, faults, folds). The diamond drilling confirmed mineralization with vertical mineral zoning where copper was vertically zoned with pyrite and galena; bornite, chalcocite, chalcopyrite, and copper oxides in abundance. Advanced studies in academia confirmed simultaneous mineralization within the property and at Spar Lake, Montanore, and Rock Creek, Montana, developed by Hecla, which makes it a potential target area for copper deposits on a global scale.
