|Location and accuracy||The Metals prospect is at an elevation of about 5,300 feet on the north wall of the valley of upper McCallie Creek. The map site is on the boundary of Denali National Park and Preserve, in the NW1/4 of sec. 6, T. 21 S., R. 12 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian. The accuracy of this location is within 1 mile. This is location E-33 from Balen (1990: OFR 34-90).|
Geologic descriptionThe country rocks in the area of the Metals prospect are Upper Triassic limestone and basalt flows. The deposit is in these bedded rocks and apparently consists of arsenopyrite(?) disseminations and arsenopyrite(?)-bearing quartz(?) stockwork veinlets. Geochemical analyses show that this is primarily a gold prospect (Balen 1990: OFR 34-90).
