The gold mineralization at Marigold is finely disseminated into the host rock in very small particles. The rock formations exposed or mined are sedimentary and meta-sedimentary rocks, Paleozoic in age. The various open pit mines contain a variety of gold-hosting rock, including limestone, siltstone, breccias, meta-basalts and quartzite. Much of the property is masked by a cover of Tertiary tuff and Quaternary alluvium, and drilling is very important in discovering the underlying geologic secrets.
