|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is best exposed in a southward-flowing drainage at the base of a volcanic neck in the Kejulik Mountains. It is about 6 miles south-southwest of Kejulik Pass at an elevation of about 1,250 feet in the SE1/4 sec. 22, T. 25 S., R. 39 W., of the Seward Meridian. The location is accurate within one-half mile.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of highly bleached rocks at the base of a Pleistocene and late Tertiary volcanic neck. The neck consists of lava flows, breccias, tuffs, and domes of andesite and dacite (Riehle and others, 1993). The bleached rocks contain both disseminated and vein pyrite exposed in the valley floor. Panned concentrate samples collected by Church and Bennett (1989) contain pyrite, pyrite, sphalerite, and barite. The samples contain up to 300 parts per million (ppm) copper, 150 ppm zinc, 50 ppm cobalt, 50 ppm nickel, 10 ppm molybdenum, and 2.7 ppm cadmium (Church, Riehle, and Goldfarb, 1993).
