Geologic setting

Geologic description

The rocks in the general area are mainly Ordovician and Devonian to Triassic clastic units, mafic-intermediate volcanic rocks, and subordinate limestone. The bedded rocks are intruded and locally metamorphosed by Cretaceous granodiorite (Gehrels and Berg, 1994).
The Alaska Kardex file 112-139 shows a gold placer claim at this location. If the location is correct it would be 1/2 mile downstream from the Bear Creek asbestos prospect (JU219) (Cobb, 1978 [OFR 78-374]). No other information is available.
