|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is 4 miles northwest of Mt. Young at an elevation of approximately 4,500 feet. It is in the NE1/4 section 19, T. 34 S., R. 59 E. of the Copper River Meridian. The location is accurate within 1/2 mile. There are several other occurrences in the Mt. Young area (JU020, JU025); the locations given by Wells and others (1986) appear to be the most accurate.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence is in a geologically complex area characterized by a variety of metamorphic rocks, small granitic plutons, and mafic dikes (MacKevett and others, 1971). Brew and Ford (1985) map the general area as predominantly Devonian and Silurian greenstone, greenschist, limestone and graywacke, intruded by Cretaceous biotite-hornblende granodiorite. The occurrence consists of several ankeritic altered zones between 5 and 30 feet thick that cut granitic rocks. Samples from these zones contained anomalous copper and molybdenum (MacKevett and others, 1971).
