|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is south of lower Michigan Creek feet about 3 miles east-northeast of the junction of Michigan Creek and Wild River. The occurrence is at an elevation of 1,850 feet about 0.5 mile west-northwest of the center of section 3, T. 28 N., R. 17 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian. The location is accurate.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of sulfide-bearing quartz veins and sulfides disseminations in greenschist. Dillon and others (1981, samples 52 and 402 [AOF 133B]) collected two samples of greenschist, one with thin quartz and pyrite veins, and one containing disseminated pyrite and traces of sphalerite in veins. One sample contained 500 ppm arsenic. The rocks in the vicinity consist of metabasite (Dillon and others, 1986).
