|Location and accuracy||Locality is on Peak 6,515 approximately 4.8 km NE of the eastern end of Twin Lakes. This is locality 12 of Nelson and others (1985) and locality 20 of MacKevett and Holloway (1977). Sec. 8, T. 7 N., R. 25 W., of the Seward Meridian. Locality is accurate to within 1.6 km.|
Geologic descriptionDisseminated chalcopyrite, bornite, and associated pyrrhotite occur in mafic to intermediate metavolcanic rocks interbedded with marble (Nelson and others, 1985; 1983, unit Tvf). Nelson and others (1983) report small intrusive bodies that range in composition from granite to gabbro also occur in vicinity. Potassium-argon ages range from 56.2 to 62.7 m.y. (Eakins and others, 1978).
