|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is on the nose of a small, east-trending ridge near the center of section 5, T. 7 N., R. 17 E. of the Copper River Meridian. It is at an elevation of about 5,700 feet, 4,800 feet southeast of peak 7144. This is locality 37 of Richter and others (1975). It is located to within a few hundred feet.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of segregations of pyrite and chalcopyrite in the hornblendite, border zone of the Antler Creek pluton (Richter and others, 1975). The Antler Creek pluton is part of a mid-Cretaceous intrusive suite associated with copper skarn and porphyry deposits elsewhere in the Nabesna quadrangle (e.g., NB022 and NB043). A K/Ar date on hornblendite in the border zone of the Antler Creek pluton is 105 +/- 2.8 Ma (Richter, 1975; Richter, Lanphere, and Matson, 1975).
