Geologic setting

Geologic description

Lode gold claims were active at this site in 1976; Wells and others (1986) call it the Baldy Mountain prospect, and Alaska Kardex file 112-160 shows a silver, lead, zinc claim here. 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).
