This locality is not necessarily an ore deposit that I am aware of, but the occurrence certainly exemplifies the natures of some of the ore textures found in copper porphyries. This specimen shows good colloform habit of Quartz veins lined with flakes of Molybdenite and Pyrite. There are three pieces that come with this specimen.
