|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is located on David Island just offshore from Port Wrangell. Site location is accurate to within 1/2 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThis site is underlain by Miocene and Pliocene andesite and basalt flows, lithic tuffs, and breccias (Detterman and others, 1987). The rocks are locally silicified and exhibit other, undetermined alteration. Anomalous values in copper, molybdenum, and lead have been reported in samples of igneous rock (Wilson and O'Leary, 1986). A massive pyritic lode, 10 to 20 feet thick, is exposed at the wave base on the south side of a small point at the east end of the island and along the northeast shore (Church and others, 1989: B-1858). Grab samples of this material are anomalous in arsenic, bismuth, and antimony. Hydrothermal alteration is reportedly widespread along the northeast shore.
