|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is on the crest of a low northeast-trending ridge that is northwest of the head of Smith Creek. It is near hill 1170 and about 0.6 mile west-southwest of the center of section 24, T. 24 N., R. 50 W., of the Seward Meridian. The location is accurate.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of a zone of hydrothermally altered olivine-bearing, basaltic andesite of the Iditarod volcanics (Miller and Bundtzen, 1988; Miller and Bundtzen, 1994; Miller, Bundtzen, and Gray, 2005). The alteration which is marked by sericite and carbonate minerals occurs along N35E-striking cleavage planes that dip about 42NW. The size of the zone is uncertain. One grab sample of mineralization contained 240 parts per million (ppm) antimony, 100 ppm copper, and 7.0 ppm molybdenum (McGimsey and others, 1988).
