|Location and accuracy||This prospect is on the west side of the canyon of the Chichokna River, about one-half mile upstream of its mouth on the Chitaslina River. The map site is in the NW1/4 section 4, T. 1 N., R. 5 E., of the Copper River Meridian. This prospect is approximately located, perhaps to within one-half mile. It is locality 112 of Winkler and others (1981 [OFR 80-892-B]).|
Geologic descriptionIron-stained greenschist and calc-schist rocks, tentatively correlated with the Paleozoic Skolai Group (Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-B]; Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-A]), have been prospected with dozer trenches (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1980; Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-B]). Pyrite, barite, and possibly chalcopyrite are reported. The age and type of deposit are not known.
