It also includes various stream deposits, gravel, fanglomerates, and older gravels.

It is not very consistent in description from county to county.

Hydrothermal fluids then deposited the antimony and mercury mineralization and silicified the parent tuff. This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys.

This occurred at about 15.7±0.4 Ma based on Noble et al. Sometimes the silica and ore replacement is so thorough the parent rock textures and grains can no longer be recognized, even in thin sections under the microscope. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.
