|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 3,600 feet, 1.8 miles west-southwest of VABM Indian. It is about midway between the Parks Highway and the Alaska Railroad tracks, about 0.4 mile south-southeast of the center of sec. 18, T. 32 N., R. 2 W. of the Fairbanks Meridian. The location is accurate to within 1/4 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of disseminated pyrite in altered, contact-metamorphosed argillite and graywacke, adjacent to a Tertiary granitic intrusion (Csejtey and Miller, 1978). A sample of graywacke contains 500 parts per million copper, 100 parts per million nickel, and 300 parts per million chromium (Miller and others, 1978).
