|Location and accuracy||Reed and others (1978, locality 43) show this occurrence in a tributary to the Kanikula Glacier at about 2500 foot elevation in the northwest quarter of Section 15, T. 30 N., R. 9 W., of the Seward Meridian within Denali National Park and Preserve.|
Geologic descriptionVisible gold is described by Reed and others (1978) from pan concentrate samples at this site. The area is underlain by Mesozoic marine sedimentary rocks (KJs) which are covered by Quaternary alluvial deposits (Reed and Nelson, 1980). Dikes and intrusive bodies related to the early Tertiary Kahiltna pluton (Tmk, Reed and Nelson, 1980) intrude the KJs about four miles northwest of this locality.
