The sequence is approximately 6 kilometres wide with a northerly trend. In the vicinity of the Eureka mine the sequence generally has an easterly dip of between 65 to 70 degrees paralleled by regional foliation and metamorphism.
Mineralisation is hosted with a sheared/faulted mafic package dipping to the East at approximately 70 degrees, mineralisation is associated with numerous quartz veins with and associated proximal alteration, base of oxidation extends down to approximately 120m at the Eureka mine area mineralisation is up to 30m in thickness.
