Geologic descriptionSmall malachite-stained quartz vein in iron-rich black phyllite which is geochemically anomalous in Ag, Ba, Mo and V in a zone extending 2.5 km along strike (Mayfield and Grybeck, 1978). This type of copper mineralization in black metapelite containing anomalous Ag-Ba-Mo-V may be related to dewatering of a large Paleozoic (?) clastic basin (Schmidt and Werdon, 1993), and occurs throughout this part of the Brooks Range (Kurtak and others, 1995; Schmidt, 1997, p. 35-65).
