Silver Mines of Granite County Montana

The principles of economic geology By William Harvey Emmons (page 248)

Sericitic Silver-gold Veins.—The sericitic silver-gold veins of Granite County, Montana,1 include several parallel lodes that are traceable for a mile or more along the strike. They cut quartz monzonite of early Tertiary age. The granite walls of the fissure fillings have not been replaced by ore to any great extent, and nowhere, so far as known, can the granite of the walls or horses be worked at a profit. The metasomatic changes which the ore-depositing solutions have produced in the granite are nevertheless noteworthy and clear in their expression. These solutions have attacked nearly all minerals in the granite and have deposited large quantities of calcite and sericite with considerable quartz. The alteration extends to varying distances, but the greatest alteration is confined to a zone less than 20 feet on each side of the vein.
