|Location and accuracy||The map site of this approcimately located occurrence is at an elevation of about 450 feet, about midway between North and West Heads, on Unga Island east of Zachary Bay (Christie, 1974, color anomaly 78?; MacKevett and Holloway, 1977, locality 17; Wilson and others, 1988, locality 17). The location is accurate to within 2 miles.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence is in rocks mapped as Popof volcanic rocks of late Eocene to early Oligocene age (Wilson and others, 1995). It is described as an altered zone in Tertiary volcanic rocks by MacKevett and Holloway (1977). The occurrence may correspond to Christie's (1974) color anomaly 78, which he describes as being 3,000 feet in diameter and consisting of pyrite and minor pyrrhotite in fractured volcanic rocks. Gold is herein speculatively listed as a commondity, based on its occurrence elsewhere in the Popov volcanic rocks.
