|Location and accuracy||This prospect is located on the southwest end of Heavenly Ridge at an elevation of about 4,200 feet; it is about eight-tenths of a mile southwest of VABM Shale in the SW1/4 section 9, T. 1 N., R. 9 W., of the Copper River Meridian. It is approximately located, perhaps to within one-half mile. This prospect is locality 84 of Winkler and others (1981 [OFR 80-892-B]).|
Geologic descriptionWinkler and others (1981 [OFR 80-892-B]) reported that mafic volcanic breccia of the Jurassic Talkeetna Formation contains stringers and pods of sulfide-impregnated quartz here. The volcanic rocks are cut by a dacite plug.
