|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is located on the Alaska Peninsula approximately 2.6 miles west of the west shore of Mud Bay (on Port Moller) and 3.2 miles east of Staniukovich Mountain. The site is 0.25 mile due east of the top of hill 1725. It is referred to as PMRGX-35 in Wilson and others (1988, locality 83). The location is accurate to within 2,500 feet.|
Geologic descriptionThe country rocks at this site are basalt(?) flows of the Eocene to Oligocene Meshik Volcanics (Wilson and others, 1995). They are interbedded with volcanic breccia and contain pockets of sedimentary rocks containing abundant fossil oysters. Two samples collected here by the U.S. Geological Survey in the mid-1980s were reported to be anomalous in antimony, copper, and zinc (Wilson and others, 1988).
