Geologic setting

Geologic description

The rocks in the vicinity of this prospect or mine are a dacite intrusion of Permian age near its contact with volcanic agglomerate of the Slana Spur Formation of Pennsylvanian and early Permian age (Nokleberg and others, 1991). Judged from its topographic and geologic occurrence, the prospect could be either a placer location or a copper occurrence similar to MH291. There is, however, no information about this record other than the mine symbol on the Mount Hayes A-2 topographic map.
