Basic District Overview
The ore body of the Rock Ledge lode claim is particularly easy to follow the vein and contact zones and within the shafts both of the veins and vein structures are well defined. The veins are primarily carrying gold values with some additionally indicator base minerals such as copper and iron.
The surrounding mining district around the Rock Ledge lode claim has historically been mined for primarily gold and silver since the late 1800's. Much of the geology is based on pinch and swell characteristics of the vein structure, this has led to the area being known for small mines following the swelling (widest) part of the vein system. Consequently, the Rock Ledge Lode Claim is positioned overtop of a swell in the vein, this is the location the adit and shafts were sunk onto the highest grade ore body.
District gold averages range from .75 - 1.5 ounces per ton gold.
