|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 2,900 feet on a west tributary of the Talkeetna River, about 4.9 miles south-southeast of the junction of the Talkeetna River and Cache Creek. It is the SE1/4NE1/4 sec. 11, T. 28 N., R. 2 E., Seward Meridian. The location is accurate to within 1/4 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of an extensive deep-red to light-brown, pyritic gossan in aphanitic intermediate metavolcanic rocks of Paleozoic age (Csejtey and Miller, 1978). Granitic rocks are also reported in the area (Miller and others, 1978). Samples of the granitic rocks contain up to 300 parts per million molybdenum; samples of the iron-stained volcanic rocks contain up to 1 part per million silver and 700 parts per million arsenic (Miller and others, 1978).
