The Abyss
Placer Mining Claim

±20 Acres

Price: $5,500

Geology: The principal rocks that underlie the district are slate, mica schist, and quartzite. Greenstone lies to the northeast and serpentine to the southwest. American and Thompson Valleys are underlain by Recent and Pleistocene alluvium. A few isolated peaks in the area are capped by basalt.

Ore Deposits: Gold-quartz veins occur principaly in slate and mica schist; some are as thick as 15 feet. The veins may be massive or consist of numerous parallel stringers. The ore contains free gold and verying amounts of sulfides, chiefly pyrite. Although some of the veins have been developed for horizontal distances of several thousand feet, none has been worked to depths of greater than a few hundred feet. There are a few small Tertiary channel gravel deposits to the south. The Recent and Pleistocene valley alluvium is gold-bearing in places.

Mines: Placer: Bushman, Carr, Cascade, Elizabethtown Flat, Imperial, Manhattan, Mill Creek, Newton Cons., Newton Flat, Riverdale. Lode: Bell, Butterfly, Fairplay, Gold Leaf Cons., King Soloman, St. Nicolas, Tefft, White Oak.
