Unnamed Occurrence (ARDF - KC136), Sylburn Harbor, Annette Island, Ketchikan District, Prince of Wales-Outer Ketchikan Borough, Alaska, USA
Location: This occurrence is on the shoreline of outer Sylburn Harbor, about 1.8 miles north-northeast of Driest Point. The site is in section 8, T. 77 S., R. 92 E., of the Copper River Meridian. It corresponds to loc. 14 in Berg (1972 [I 684]), loc. 133 in Elliott and others (1978), and loc. 14a-c in Karl (1992). The location is accurate within 0.1 mile.
Geology: The country rock at this site is locally sheared and sericitized Silurian trondhjemite that was regionally metamorphosed to greenschist grade in Late Cretaceous time (Berg, 1972). The occurrence consists of galena in a thin, discontinuous, calcite-quartz fissure vein in a subhorizontal shear zone up to 20 feet thick and several hundred feet long. A grab sample of the sulfide-bearing vein assayed 1.38 oz. Au/ton and 0.42 oz. Ag/ton.
Workings: A grab sample of the sulfide-bearing vein assayed 1.38 oz. Au/ton and 0.42 oz. Ag/ton (Berg, 1972).
Age: The fissure vein probably is Late Cretaceous or younger in age.
Alteration: Local sericitization of trondhjemite.
Commodities (Major) - Ag, Au, Pb
Development Status: None
Deposit Model: Polymetallic veins? (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 22c)
