|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is about 600 feet east of VABM Hickey at an elevation of about 2,150 feet. The occurrence is near the center of section 25, T. 30 N., R. 45 W., of the Seward Meridian. The location is accurate.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence is a brecciated, iron- stained sandstone of the Upper Cretaceous, Kuskokwim Group that contains quartz veins (Miller and Bundtzen, 1994; Miller, Bundtzen, and Gray, 2005). Samples of the iron-stained breccia zones with quartz veins contained 70 parts per million (ppm) antimony, 850 parts per billion (ppb) mercury, and 50 ppm arsenic (McGimsey and others, 1988).
