|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 4,500 feet, 7.5 miles north of Mt. Young and about 9 miles west of Sullivan Island. It is approximately 0.4 mile north-northeast of peak 6010 in the SW1/4 section 34, T. 33 S., R. 59 E. of the Copper River Meridian. The location is accurate within 1/2 mile. It is just east of the boundary of Glacier Bay National Park and Reserve.|
The rocks in the area of this occurrence area are predominantly Silurian dark-gray, siliceous graywacke and argillite (Brew and Ford, 1985). Chalcopyrite, pyrite and pyrrhotite are disseminated in a siliceous greenschist (Wells and others, 1986). Cobalt was identified as a major trace constituent (Cobb,1978 [OFR-78-374]).The area is underlain by deformed and metamorphosed Silurian or Devonian carbonate, clastic and volcanic clastic rocks that have been intruded by Upper Jurassic and Lower Cretaceous granitic and dioritic rocks (Brew and others, 1992).
