|Location and accuracy||This site is located on the northwest tip of the peninsula separating Zachar and Amook Bays in sec. 18, T. 30 S., R. 28 W., of the Seward Meridian (Martin, 1913, locality 6; Cobb, 1972, MF 460, locality 3; MacKevett and Holloway, 1977, locality 3). Site location is accurate to within 1/2 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of a 12-inch thick quartz vein which strikes N 70 E and dips southeast. It cuts Cretaceous sandstone and shale and fills one of a series of rectangular joints. Minor amounts of arsenopyrite were observed. Acidic dikes occur in the vicinity.
