|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 2,300 feet, about 0.6 mile east of the Bismarck Creek prospect (ID130). It is about 0.6 mile south-southeast of hill 2475 and near the center of section 23, T. 27 N., R. 42 W., of the Seward Meridian. The location is accurate.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence is a gossan of unknown size and orientation. Any original sulfides have been completely oxidized. The gossan is at the edge of a large area of hornfels derived from the Upper Cretaceous, Kuskokwim Group (Miller and Bundtzen, 1994; Bundtzen and Miller, 1997; Miller, Bundtzen, and Gray, 2005). One grab sample of gossan from the occurrence contained 500 parts per million (ppm) copper, 140 ppm antimony, 500 ppb silver, and 20 ppm arsenic (McGimsey and others, 1988).
