Geology: Several granitic stocks are intrusive into slate, quartzite and limestone of the Claveras Formation (Carboniferous to Permian) and amphibolite. Exfoliaiton has formed several round granitic domes, of which Bald Rock is the most prominent. Serpentine, some Tertiary basalt and a few patches of Tertiary auriferous gravel are present. The veins are narrow, but the ore bodies often are rich. Pyrite and galena are abundant.
