|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is on a broad, north-south trending ridge about 1.6 mile north-northwest of VABM Sue. The occurrence is at an elevation of 800 feet, about 0.2 mile south of the center of sec. 24, T. 18 N., R. 51 W., of the Seward Meridian. The location is accurate.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence is a zone of quartz veining at the contact between granite porphyry and diorite (Bundtzen and others, 1998). The details of the intrusive contact is unclear and the mineralization is poorly understood. One grab sample of the quartz vein contained 9 parts per billion (ppb) gold, 72 parts per million (ppm) copper, 94 ppm lead, 86 ppm tungsten, 167 ppm lanthanum, 28.3 ppm samarium, 800 ppm cerium, 2,200 ppm zirconium, 8.5 ppm uranium, 51.0 ppm thorium, and 8.4 ppm mercury (Bundtzen and others, 1998).
