|WEST BROTHERS / HOG CANYON MINE||Au Ag F PGM||HYDROTHERMAL VEIN||ARIZONA
PreCambrian volcanic pile, andesite. low-angle
faulting, associated brecciation, shearing and intense alteration. Large
Quartz veining in the West Brothers shaft area, together with an
illite-kaolinite alteration envelope overlaying the silicified zone.
Extensive brecciation in the Hog Canyon area, including both chalcedonic and
calcite andsilica tectonic breccia. Mineralization of significance includes wide chalcedonic ribs that
parallel HOG canyon on the north side of the wash. These ribs are roughly
20' to 30' thick and in places are sheared and brecciated. East of Hog
Canyon wash lies chacedonic breccia and a jasperiod quartz which is
fractured and filled with secondary silica and limonite.
Partial exposures of illite-kaolinite
alteration zones are scattered over property. A flat lying silicified shear zone is intersected by a
near vertical quartz filled fault zone and at nearly right angles.
West Brothers produced gold in the
1930's. There are two past production shafts, one exploration shaft, one
exploration adit, one production drift now caved; dozer cuts and scattered
hand dug pits. Some gold production by Shumway/Craig joint venture.
930,000 tons of gold bearing ore above ground.
Engineer states "I do not hesitate to state, without fear or favor, that
this gold prospect is one of the best I have ever examined."
