|Location and accuracy||Snowy Peak, not named on the Charley River C-4 topographic map, is distinguished by VABM 'Tim', at an elevation of 4,273 feet (section 25, T. 9 N., R. 23 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian). The Snowy Peak area has three centers of prospecting activity; two are northeast of Snowy Peak, and the third is about 5 miles to the south. The northernmost one is in the NE1/4 section 26, T. 10 N., R. 24 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. Another one is nearby in the SW1/4 section 36, T. 10 N., R. 24 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. The third is in the SW1/4 section 8, T. 8 N., R. 24 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. Coordinates are for the northernmost center of activity. The locations are accurate. These prospects lie on Doyon, Ltd. selected or conveyed land.|
The southern Snowy Peak prospects are underlain by Precambrian dolomite, Permian argillite, Devonian limestone, Permian Step Conglomerate, and Cretaceous Keenan Quartzite (Dover and Miyaoka, 1988). The northern Snowy Peak prospects are underlain by the Nation River Formation and Precambrian basalt. Anomalous lead and zinc values were found in soil and silt samples. The source of the anomalies is unknown. Float rocks from the southern area are very heavily iron stained (Andres and others, 1977).Samples in the Snowy Peak prospect areas contain 470 parts per million zinc. Snowy Peak prospects have been intermittently soil and silt sampled since the mid-1970s (Doyon. Limited, 1986).
