Location and accuracy This occurrence is at the south tip of an islet just off the east shoreline of inner Tamgas Harbor, about 0.85 mile north-northeast of Crab Point. The site is in section 27, T. 78 S., R. 92 E., of the Copper River Meridian. It corresponds to loc. 42 in Berg (1972 [I 684]), loc. 150 in Elliott and others (1978), and loc. 46 in Karl (1992). The location is accurate within a few hundred feet.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

The country rocks at this site are greenschist-grade schist and hornfels, probably derived from volcanic, sedimentary, and intrusive rocks of Silurian and Ordovician age (Berg, 1972; Berg and others, 1988). The occurrence consists of pyrite and chalcopyrite very sparsely disseminated in the schist and hornfels (Berg, 1992, loc. 42).
