General Information

Abstract: Brewery Creek is a bulk tonnage gold deposit 76 km east of Dawson. The economically important intrusive bodies are the semi-conformable sills of quartz monzonite which intrude into upper Road River and lower Earn Group (dominantly clastic sedimentary) strata. Low angle faults, inferred to be thrust faults, appear to have controlled the emplacement of the Cretaceous quartz monzonite sills which host most of the gold mineralization.
