The Nugget Gulch claim group is located in a valley of gold bearing Yavapai schist, the basement rock that strikes well over 80 miles in a north-south direction and is several miles or more in width. Much of the schist is covered with alluvium and the placer gold is generally found under the alluvium and in the cracks, fractures, and crevices of the schist host rock. In our testing, we recovered fines, flakes and pickers of placer gold in the alluvium above the bedrock and a few small nuggets in fractured bedrock.
Gold bearing narrow quartz veins traverse the schist in this entire area and our testing recovered fine gold when samples of quartz was pulverized minus 80 mesh and ran through our Desert Fox Gold Wheel.
