|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is located on Mitrofania Island approximately 1,200 feet north of the north shore of Sosbee Bay (MacKevett and Holloway, 1977, locality 9; Wilson and others, 1988, locality 9). The map site is at an elevation of about 500 feet, 0.4 mile due east of the center of sec. 11, T. 50 S., R. 62 W., of the Seward Meridian. The location is accurate to within 1 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe country rocks in the area of this occurrence are Tertiary volcanic rocks (Wilson and others, 1995). MacKevett and Holloway (1977) described the occurrence as an altered zone associated with Tertiary granitic rocks, but mapping by the U.S. Geological Survey in the mid-1980s did not indicate any granitic plutons in the general area (Wilson and others, 1995). Samples of volcanic rock collected by the U.S. Geological Survey contained as much as 50 ppm copper, 15 ppm lead, and 55 ppm zinc (Angeloni and others, 1985).
