  • Mixed phyllic and chloritic dominant alteration occurs to 631 meters, then chlorite with magnetite alteration gradually diminishes to the end of the hole.

  • Chlorite alteration dominates throughout except for the interval from 92.2 to 393 meters where there is overprinting by phyllic assemblages.

  • Alteration in the andesite is mixed chlorite and phyllic dominant to the intrusion, and chlorite dominant from there until the end of the hole.

  • A phyllic (quartz-sericite-clay-pyrite) alteration assemblage dominates to a depth of 198 meters, then a mixed zone where phyllic assemblages are superimposed on earlier chloritic assemblages (quartz-chlorite-pyrite) down to 394 meters.

  • The pyritic zones which contain 5-7% pyrite and local chalcopyrite are associated with strong local "potassic" and pervasive "phyllic" alteration zones intruded by strongly epidote altered dykes.

  • Duran geologists have identified extensive zones with stockwork quartz veinlets and oxidized pyrite, which are part of a large phyllic alteration system that grades outwards to zones of argillic and propylitic alteration.
