|Location and accuracy||The Tenakee prospect is at an elevation of about 200 feet on the southwest valley wall of the tidal flat at the head of Tenakee Inlet. The prospect is 0.3 mile west-northwest of the center of sec. 5, T. 45 S., R. 58 E. It is MAS no. 0021140095 (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002). The location is accurate within about 0.5 mile.|
Geologic descriptionLoney and others (1975) map the rocks in the area of this prospect as Paleozoic(?) sedimentary and volcanic rocks that are intruded by, or are roof pendants in, a Cretaceous diorite-tonalite-granodiorite batholith. The sedimentary and volcanic rocks have been thermally metamorphosed to hornfels, granofels, marble, schist, and amphibolite. These metamorphic and plutonic rocks in turn are intruded by stocks of Tertiary(?) leucogabbro. The rocks are cut by numerous high-angle faults of varying, but mainly northwest, strike. The only published information about this prospect is that it has been staked for nickel (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002).
