|Location and accuracy||Locality is on the slope about 650 m NW of Otter Lake. This is locality 14 of Nelson and others (1985) and locality 22 of MacKevett and Holloway (1977). Sec. 35, T. 5 N., R. 26 W., of the Seward Meridian. Locality is accurate to within 1.6 km. Coordinates are for a point in the center of the occurrence. The occurrence is 2.6 km wide and extends 3.2km NE and SW from plotted location.|
Geologic descriptionWest of Otter Lake, chlorite schists contain interbedded argillites, cherts, and recrystallized limestone. The schist contains disseminated chalcopyrite in massive pyrite. Within the Lake Clark schist belt. MacKevett and Holloway (1977) describe the rocks as Paleozoic (?) schists, largely of volcanic derivation; inlcudes both mafic and felsic volcanic schist. Felsic meta-volcanic rocks northeast of Portage Lake (located NW of Otter Lake) are considered to be a favorable host for network type copper-zinc deposit (Resource Associates of Alaska, 1976). Limestone beds are common hosts for mineralization.
