|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 2,000 feet on the north bank of the Susitna River, 1 mile east of the mouth of Jay Creek. The location is accurate to within 1/4 mile. This is locality 26 of Csejtey and Miller (1978).|
Geologic descriptionThe Su occurrence consists of minor chalcopyrite and pyrite in a small quartz vein that cuts mafic metavolcanic rocks of Paleozoic age (Csejtey and Miller, 1978). A sample of the vein contains 1,000 parts per million copper and 0.05 parts per million gold (Miller and others, 1978).
