|Location and accuracy||This unnamed occurrence is located along the northeast side of Wall Street Creek, approximately 2.5 miles from the mouth. It is located in section 16, T. 26 N., R. 19 E., of the Copper River Meridian. The location is accurate within one-half mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe rocks in the area of this occurrence are Paleozoic amphibolite-facies quartzite and amphibolite (Werdon and others, 2001). There is a high-angle, northwest-trending, strike-slip fault along Wall Street Creek that juxtaposes amphibolite-facies rocks on the northeast side of the fault with upper Paleozoic greenschist-facies metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks on the southwest side. In 1968, Smith (1969) collected a quartz-rich rock sample (quartzite?) from here that assayed 3 percent zinc.
