|Location and accuracy||The approximate location of this occurrence is on or near hill 3601 between the Middle and South Forks of Paint River. For this record, the occurrence is at an elevation of about 3,400 feet in the NW1/4 NE1/4 sec. 35, T. 12 S., R. 32 W., Seward Meridian. The site, which is locality 26 of MacKevett and Holloway (1977), is accurate within about 1 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe area of this occurrence is underlain by volcanic flows and fragmental rocks of the Jurassic Talkeetna Formation, and possibly at shallow depth by Jurassic granodiorite, which crops out to the south and northeast (Detterman and Reed, 1980). Copper or iron claims were staked in the area (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1973; MacKevett and Holloway, 1977), probably on chalcopyrite- or magnetite-bearing skarn deposits.
