|Location and accuracy||The map site of this occurrence is west of Beaver River at an elevation of 400 feet, in the NW1/4 of sec. 20, T. 53 S., R. 76 W., Seward Meridian. It is referred to as PMRGX-24 by Wilson and others (1988, locality 72). The location is accurate to within 1,200 feet.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence is on the axis of an anticline composed of shale and rusty siltstone of the Upper Cretaceous Hoodoo Formation (Wilson and others, 1995). The strata are intruded by numerous small dikes. One sample collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in the mid-1980s was reported to be anomalous in barium, lead, and zinc (Wilson and Others, 1988).
