|Location and accuracy||The occurrence overlooks Taroka Arm and is on the south flank of Hill 3835 at about 1,300 feet in elevation . Taroka Arm is the southeastern arm of Two Arm Bay. This is MacKevett and Holloway's (1977) location 20 and is accurate to within half a mile.|
Geologic descriptionThree, quartz-pyrite veins intrude Cretaceous Valdez Group graywacke and slate (MacKevett and Holloway, 1977). The veins are 2 to 6 feet thick. Martin and others (1915) visited one of the veins that strikes N27E and dips 40W. It was 71 inches thick and contained pyrite, chalcopyrite, and graphite. No assay results are reported.
