|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 2,700 feet on the lake-strewn plateau on the southeast side of the Talkeetna River. It is approximately 4 1/2 miles southwest of the junction of the Talkeetna River with Cache Creek, near the southwest corner of sec. 6, T. 28 N., R. 2 E., Seward Meridian. The location is accurate to within 1/2 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of iron-stained, very fine grained gossan with disseminated pyrite; the gossan is associated with a shear zone in mafic metavolcanic rocks of Paleozoic age (Csejtey and Miller, 1978). A sample of the pyritic gossan contains 1 part per million silver and 0.05 part per million gold (Miller and others, 1978).
