|Location and accuracy||The unnamed occurrence is located on a steep east-facing slope overlooking Cheeneetnuk River, at an elevation of 1,400 feet (427 m) in the southern half of sec. 22, T. 23 N., R. 32 W., of the Seward Meridian. The occurrence corresponds to map number 120 of Gilbert (1981); his station no. 77WG5.|
Geologic descriptionThis unnamed occurrence is a mineralized, pyritic argillite near the contact between Middle Devonian limestone and upper Paleozoic argillite, both subdivisions of the Mystic subterrane (Gilbert, 1981; Wilson and others, 1998). The argillite appears to be thermally upgraded to hornfels; a mid-Tertiary granite pluton is exposed about one mile west of the occurrence. One grab sample contained 178 ppm copper and 0.7 grams/tonne silver (Gilbert, 1981).
