|Location and accuracy||The Tv Bas occurrence is at an elevation of about 4,400 feet 3.3 miles north of the east tip of Sevenmile Lake. It is just inside the northwest corner of section 35, T. 19 S., R. 8 E., Fairbanks Meridian. The location is accurate within 0.2 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe TV Bas occurrence is in outcrop and rubble crop of Tertiary gray to red-brown, locally vesicular olivine basalt that unconformably overlies mafic-ultramafic rocks of the Fish Lake complex of Late Triassic age (Nokleberg and others, 1991). The basalt is porphyritic; light green olivine phenocrysts occur in a fine-grained matrix. Vesicles contain epidote, zeolite (?), pyrite, and chalcopyrite fillings (W.T. Ellis, oral communication, 2001). Grab samples of vesicular basalt contain as much as 254 parts per million copper.
