|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 800 feet on a steep bluff about 0.5 mile north of Beaver Creek. It is about 1.0 mile southwest of hill 1170, about 0.8 mile east-southeast of hill 985, and bout 0.2 mile west of the northeast corner of section 27, T. 30 N., R. 37 W., of the Seward Meridian. The location is accurate.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of quartz stringers in an altered felsic(?) dike that cuts shale and sandstone of the Upper Cretaceous, Kuskokwim Group (Miller and Bundtzen, 1994; Miller, Bundtzen, and Gray, 2005). Grab samples contain up to 1.00 percent arsenic, more than 10.0 parts per million (ppm) mercury, 200 ppm tungsten, 100 ppm lead, 1,000 ppm chromium, and 120 ppm zinc (McGimsey and others, 1988).
