|Location and accuracy||This site represents eight rock geochemical sample sites spread over a radius of 3 miles west of Big River. The map site, at the approximate center of this area, is at an elevation of 500 feet on a west tributary of Big River, in the SW1/4 of sec. 17, T. 49 S., R. 68 W., of the Seward Meridian. The site is referred to as SBRGX-53 in Wilson and others (1988, locality 27).|
Geologic descriptionThe area of this occurrence is underlain by several Tertiary formations, most of which are sedimentary (Wilson and others, 1995). Eight rock samples collected by the U.S. Geological Survey were reported to be anomalous in one or more of the following: copper, zinc, antimony, tin, and arsenic (Wilson and others, 1988).
