This study focuses on timing relationship between the late intrusive phases of the Zeballos stock, mafic dykes and gold mineralization at the Privateer Mine and lithological, geochemical and structural controls on gold mineralization.  This work entails U-Pb chronology of the intrusive phases, geochemistry, detailed mapping, petrography, alteration, mineralogy, fluid inclusions, stable isotope and structure of the gold-bearing quartz-carbonate veins.
