|Location and accuracy||This site is at an elevation of about 4000 feet on a ridge 3 miles north of Inyuilak Creek. It is in the N1/2 of sec. 18, T. 22 N., R. 18 E., of the Kateel River Meridian. The location is accurate to within 1000 ft. The site corresponds to locality 44 of Grybeck and Nelson (1981).|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence is a contact metamorphic deposit at the contact of Devonian granite and Paleozoic schist (Grybeck and Nelson, 1981). Selected samples contain up 5 ppm Ag, 100 ppm Bi, 1 percent Cu, 30 ppm Sn, and 700 ppm Zn. The deposit is related to intrusion of the granite and is similar to other contact-metamorphic deposits in the Brooks Range (Newberry and others, 1986).
