Geologic setting

Geologic description

The rocks in the vicinity of King Creek area are Paleozoic amphibolite-facies metamorphic rocks and a small Mesozoic or Paleozoic serpentinite body on the north side of the drainage (Foster, 1976). A high-angle northeast-trending fault cuts across the upper part of the creek. Stream-sediment samples from King Creek contain 250 to 660 ppm zinc and 50 ppm lead (Dashevsky and others, 1986). WGM Inc. conducted reconnaissance stream-sediment sampling on King Creek in 1976 (Dashevsky and others, 1986). Disseminated sulfides associated with a tectonic breccia were mapped on the ridgeline at the head of King Creek (Foster, 1976).
