|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of 3,100 feet one-half mile west of Mud Lake. It is in the SE1/4SE1/4 section 1, T. 22 S., R. 11 E., Fairbanks Meridian. The occurrence corresponds to locality 1 in Rose and Saunders (1965) and locality S95 of table 2 in Nokleberg and others (1991).|
Geologic descriptionAt this locality bornite-chalcopyrite quartz veins several inches or less thick cut vesicular metabasalt of Nikolai Greenstone of Late Triassic age (Rose and Saunders, 1965). The veins strike N85W and dip 75N. Chrysocolla occurs nearby in vesicles in epidotized basalt. Asbestiform actinolite occurs in one vein.
