The Dublin Gulch gold deposits, including the Eagle Zone, are hosted by the Dublin Gulch intrusion, a member of the Tombstone plutonic suite, represented by a linear belt of middle Cretaceous intrusions that extend across the Yukon Territory. See also the Tintina & the Tombstone Gold Province.

As with many of the intrusions in the Tombstone suite, the Dublin Gulch intrusion contains several different zones of gold and tungsten mineralization, within and immediately adjacent to the intrusion.

The Eagle zone which occurs in the southwestern section of the Dublin Gulch intrusion, is the most significant gold concentration in the intrusive. Gold occurs in a broadly east-west striking, steeply south-dipping series of sheeted veins, comprising early quartz-scheelite-pyrrhotite-pyrite-arsenopyrite, with associated K-feldspar-albite alteration envelopes. These in turn grade out to and are overprinted by sericite-carbonate-chlorite alteration. The same assemblage is also found in veinlets that refracture the sheeted quartz veins and contain the majority of the gold. The gold occurs with molybdenite, lead-bismuth-antimony sulphosalts, galena, and bismuthinite.

Gold has a strong correlation with bismuth, but a poor correlation with all other elements. Tungsten and molybdenum which have a weak inter-relationship are earlier than the majority of the gold, while lead, zinc, copper, silver, antimony and arsenic have moderate to strong inter-element correlations.

The Eagle Zone at Dublin Gulch has resources of 50.3 Mt @ 0.93 g/t gold.
