|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of 4,750 feet about 4,500 feet southeast of VABM Canwell on the west side of Rainbow Ridge. It is in the NW1/4SW1/4 section 28, T. 18 S., R. 11 E., Fairbanks Meridian. The occurrence is described in Hanson (1963, p. 67) and corresponds to locality S107 in table 2 of Nokelberg and others (1991).|
Geologic descriptionAt this occurrence, pyrite forms disseminations and coats fractures in Permian (?) metadacite intrusive rocks and in fragmental volcanic rocks of the Slana Spur Formation of Pennsylvanian age (Hanson, 1963). This occurrence is one of the four prominent areas of pyrite and chalcopyrite disseminated in dacitic tuff noted by Hanson (1963, p. 67, figure 5).
