Location and accuracy This occurrence is on the divide at the head of the northern, headwater fork of Crevice Creek, and about 5 miles south-southwest of the south end of Wild Lake. The occurrence is at an elevation of about 4,000 feet, about 0.4 5 mile east-northeast of the center of section 25, T. 30 N., R. 19 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian. This occurrence is the site of sample 372 in Dillon and others (1981 [AOF 133B]). The location is accurate.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

Dillon and others (1981 [AOF 133B]) collected a float sample of scoriaceous ferricrete at this location. The sample contains 2,000 ppm copper, 3,000 ppm arsenic, 5000 ppm manganese, and 20% iron. The ferricrete float covers an area of about 3 square meters and probably represents a weathered product of the underlying rocks. The occurrence is near the thrust contact between Devonian, Hunt Fork Shale and a unit of Devonian black calcareous phyllite and thin, dark limestone (Dillon and others, 1986).
