|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 1,100 feet on top of a small ridge that separates the two headwater tributaries of Little Eldorado Creek. The occurrence is about 1.2 mile south of hill 1132 and 0.3 mile southeast of the center of section 8, T. 24 N., R. 47 W., of the Seward Meridian. The location is accurate.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of an iron stained, sericitized zone in a granite porphyry plug which intrudes sandstone of the Upper Cretaceous, Kuskokwim Group (Miller and Bundtzen, 1994; Miller, Bundtzen, and Gray, 2005). The altered zone is of uncertain size and orientation. One sample of mineralization contained 50 parts per billion (ppb) gold and 1,300 ppb mercury (McGimsey and others, 1988).
