|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is near hill 1776 on a southeast-trending ridge about 0.7 mile northwest of the sharp bend at the head of Deadwood Creek . It is at an elevation of about 1,750 feet, about 0.4 mile northeast of the center of section 11, T. 30 N., R. 42 W., of the Seward Meridian. The location is accurate.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of a series of thin quartz veins in an iron-oxide-stained, sandstone of the Upper Cretaceous, Kuskokwim Group (Miller and Bundtzen, 1994; Miller, Bundtzen, and Gray, 2005). The quartz veins are near a N50E-striking mafic dike that cuts the Kuskokwim Group. One grab sample of the quartz veins contained 200 parts per billion (ppb) gold, 1,500 ppb mercury, and 99 parts per million (ppm) arsenic (Bundtzen, Laird, and Lockwood, 1988).
