|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is situated in a small cove northeast of Cape Resurrection within the SW1/4 of section 33, T. 3 S., R. 1 E., of the Seward Meridian. This is location 7 of Cobb and Tysdal (1980) and location 6 of Tysdal (1978). This location is accurate to within one quarter of a mile.|
Geologic descriptionMartin and others, (1915) examined hand samples from this occurrence and described them as quartz containing fragments of diabase, pyrite, and a little chalcopyrite. They then went on to speculate that this occurrence is similar to the Fairview and Iron Mask prospects (Martin and others, 1915). Tysdal and Case (1979) described the bedrock geology in this area as Cretaceous, pale to dark green aphyric to porphyritic pillow basalts with subordinate pillow breccia, tuff, and siltstones. Along the west shore of Resurrection Bay the pillows are right side up, dip 30 to 50 W, and the long axes of the pillows and pillow bifurcation plung westward down dip.
