|Location and accuracy||The map site of this occurrence is at an elevation of 1,000 feet in the headwaters of Peterson Creek, approximately 2.15 miles north-northeast of Mount Dana. It is referred to as PMRGX-29 by Wilson and others (1988, locality 77). The location is accurate to within 2,500 feet.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence is in Quaternary pyroclastic and debris flow deposits (Wilson and others, 1995). The rocks include shale, lithic tuff, and pumice lapilli tuff. Two samples collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in the mid-1980s were reported to be anomalous in arsenic and copper (Wilson and others, 1988).
