|Location and accuracy||Elva Lake is a small lake on the upland between Little Togiak Lake and Amakuk Arm of Lake Nerka. This occurrence is along the drainage that enters Elva Lake from the north. It is very approximately located, perhaps within miles. The map site is on Elva Creek about 0.6 mile northwest of Elva Lake, in the SE1/4 of section 28, T 6 S, R 58 W, of the Seward Meridian. It was included by Hoare and Cobb (1977) under the name 'Lake Elva'.|
Geologic descriptionEakins (1968, p. 18) reported that placer gold was found in streams entering Lake Elva. This occurrence is arbitrarily located on the only stream entering from the north or upper end of Elva Lake. Bedrock in the area is Mesozoic sedimentary and volcanic rocks (Hoare and Coonrad, 1978).
