|Location and accuracy||This site is located on the Alaska Peninsula approximately 1.5 miles east of Albatross Anchorage, at the head of Balboa Bay ( Christie, 1974, part of color anomaly 76; Wilson and others, 1988, locality 67). It is midway between hilltops 1380 and 1280. The site is referred to as PMRGX-18 by Wilson and others (1988). The location is accurate to within 2,500 feet.|
Geologic descriptionThe country rocks at this site are altered sandstone and volcanic rocks cut by andesite dikes and sills (Wilson and others, 1988). The volcanic rocks are mapped as Miocene (Wilson and others, 1995). Five samples collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in the mid-1980s were reported to be anomalous in arsenic, barium, copper, lead, tin, and zinc (Wilson and others, 1988).
