|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is northeast of Slocum Arm at an elevation of about 1,500 feet, about 1.4 miles north-northeast of the outlet of lake 1052. The occurrence is 0.3 mile northwest of the center of sec. 36, T. 50 S., R. 60 E. It is location P-94 of Bittenbender and others (1999) and MAS no. 0021140221 (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002). The location is accurate.|
Johnson and Karl (1985) map the rocks in the area as Triassic(?) greenstone and Mesozoic or Paleozoic, siliceous metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks. The rocks are intruded by a stock of Tertiary(?) granodiorite, and cut by high-angle faults that mainly strike northwest.Bittenbender and others (1999), citing Still and Weir (1981), describe this occurrence as a zone of orange-colored mineralized rock in a gulch along a fault contact between metamorphic rocks and greenstone. Samples of the mineralized material contained up to 12 parts per million (ppm) gold, 7 ppm silver, 3,400 ppm zinc, and 100 ppm molybdenum. The ore minerals are not specified.
