|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 1,500 feet on the Alaska Peninsula approximately 5.5 miles southeast of the southeast end of Bear Lake. The map site is in the NE1/4 of sec. 27, T. 49 S., R. 70 W., Seward Meridian. It is referred to as PMRGX-34 by Wilson and others (1988, locality 82). The location is accurate to within 2,500 feet.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of a sericitic and argillic altered zone in andesitic volcanic rocks of Quaternary age (Wilson and others, 1995). A sample collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in the mid-1980s was reported to be anomalous in copper and lead (Wilson and others, 1988).
