|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is located in the SW1/4 section 24, T. 8 N., R. 2 W., of the Seward Meridian. It is situated at the head of Palmer Creek, at an elevation of 3,500 feet. This is location 26 of Tysdal (1978) and location S-288 of Jansons and others (1984). The location is accurate to within a quarter of a mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe deposit consists of several quartz veins and pods hosted in siltstone of the Valdez Group of Late Cretaceous age (Tysdal, 1978 [MF-880-A]; Nelson and others, 1985). A U.S. Geological Survey sample contained 0.13 percent manganese, 0.2 percent boron, and 70 ppm zinc (Tysdal, 1978 [MF-880A]).
