 Geology of the Canadian Sites
The geology of the Silver Crater Mine site is similar to the geology of the Fission site, and the calcite vein-dike is part of the same group of calcite vein-dikes that dot the countryside near Bancroft.
The surface geology is shown in Figure 2 [Photos of the vein-dike in Figures 2a,b].
The surface geology of the mine is shown on Figure 3.

The metavolcanics (the lowermost rock units in the Supergroup) consist of pillow lavas (indicative of underwater extrusion), breccias (fragmented lavas), tuffs and pyroclastics, all of which have been altered to varying degrees by metamorphism.

 Vein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In geology, a vein is a regularly shaped and lengthy occurrence of an ore; a lode.
Veins are used medically as points of access to the blood stream, permitting the withdrawal of blood specimens (venipuncture) for testing purposes, and enabling the infusion of fluid, electrolytes, nutrition, and medications.
Another special case is portal circulation where the portal vein transports blood rich in products of digestion from the intestines to the liver.

These properties are considered to contain prospective geology for low sulphidation epithermal vein gold mineralisation similar to that found at Esquel, Cerro Vanguardia and Huevos Verdes gold deposits in Patagonia.
In recent times, two of the world's premier low sulphidation epithermal gold vein systems, namely Esquel Gold and Cerro Vanguardia, together with several other smaller occurences have been discovered in the relatively unexplored regions of Patagonia.
A detailed appraisal of the Rio Negro, Chubut and Santa Cruz Provinces, using existing information together with state of the art technology for the analysis of regional structures, stratigraphic, alteration and mineral occurrence data, has enabled HPD's personnel to define the most prospective metallogenic districts and belts in these provinces.

The anhydrite ± pyrite± silica ± magnetite veins are characterized by having alteration halos of clay minerals or silica.
The coarse anhydrite in the center of vein Va crystallized in open space, and crystals in vugs within the vein are preferentially aligned vertically, indicating a vertical extension.

In all periods at Ross Island mining focused on a copper-rich horizon within the local limestone geology.
This bedded deposit is bordered on the eastern side by a vein-type structure (the Blue Hole) containing a rich deposit of copper, lead and zinc ore. The mineralisation at Ross Island also has a significant silver content which may have been extracted in ancient times.
Ross Island, on the eastern side of Lough Leane, saw the mining of copper and other metals at different times over the past four thousand years.

"There is not as much known about the La Esperanza prospect, the general geology of the area is similar to that of the Hilda 30 property, but locally the main occurrences are Pb-Zn-Ag veins in a heavily weathered quartz diorite intruding into what appears to be intermediate volcanics.
The narrow vein systems on the La Esperanza prospect contain significant silver, gold, copper, lead and zinc, and will be evaluated in a Spring 2005 program.
Access to the La Esperanza property is from a crossroad 21.5 kilometers closer to Hermisillo than that of the Hilda 30 access road.
