Geologic setting

Geologic description

The general area is underlain mainly by Silurian and Devonian graywacke and argillite and Middle Devonian carbonate, clastic and volcanic rocks (MacKevett and others, 1971; Brew and others, 1978). The country rocks at this prospect are Silurian graywacke and Devonian and Silurian greenstone intruded by small bodies of Cretaceous quartz monzonite and syenite (Clough and Redman, 1989). The general strike of the strata and the trend of fold axis is north to northwest. The bedded rocks are metamorphosed and cut by subordinate east-west faults (Eakins, 1975). The Kings View prospect contains gold, lead, and silver values. It is described in Alaska Kardex file 112-137, but no other information is available.
