|Location and accuracy||Ilmenite beach sands occur for several miles along the west side of Cook Inlet south of the village of Old Tyonek in Section 19, T.11 N., R. 11 W. (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1998, MAS # 0020840009). Location approximate within one mile.|
Geologic descriptionIlmenite beach sands occur for several miles along the west side of Cook Inlet between the village of Old Tyonek and Shirleyville. Cook (1969, p. 99-105) evaluated this occurrence by concentrating the heavy minerals in a -48 mesh fraction. He noted potentially valuable minerals to be magnetite, ilmenite and zircon. Minor amounts of euxenite, a source of columbium, tantalum and thorium were also noted. Very limited descriptive information is published on this prospect.
