|Location and accuracy||In the early 1980s, Mapco Exploration flew a geophysical survey over an area east of Meigs Peak and staked a large block of claims. The center of the activity was near the center of section 25, R. 46 S., R. 72 E., of the Copper River Meridian.|
Geologic descriptionIn 1981, Mapco Exploration flew an airborne EM geophysical survey in the vicinity of Meigs Peak (Redman and others, 1989). They subsequently staked a large block of claims over the stream and ridge east of Meigs Peak. There is no public information on the results of their work. The rocks in the area consist of mafic volcanic rocks and black phyllite that locally has conformable quartz veins. They are part of the Permian to Cretaceous metavolcanic unit of Gehrels and Berg (1992). Kimble and other (1984) collected stream-sediment samples in the area that were anomalous in silver, gold, lead, and zinc, but there is no information on mineralization in place in the area.
