Wolf Creek Prospect, Fairbanks District, Fairbanks North Star Borough, Alaska, USA
Location: The location given is on a series of reverse circulation holes drilled on a 2,900 ppb gold in soil anomaly (Freeman and others, 1998); Three holes were spaced approximately 300 feet apart in a north-south orientation; NW1/4 sec. 20, T. 3 N., R. 2 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian.
Geology: This northeast-trending gold soil anomaly is part of the district scale Dolphin shear zone. Anomalous gold is associated with anomalous As, Pb, Sb and sporadic Bi (Freeman and others, 1998). This regional structure also controls mineralization on the Dolphin prospect (ARDF no. LG112) and Cleary Hill mine (ARDF no. LG119) to the southwest. At this prospect, the structure juxtaposes lower plate rocks of the Fairbanks Schist on the southeast with upper plate rocks of the Chatanika terrane on the northwest. Three holes were drilled in the Wolf Creek area. While all of them had anomalous gold values, none of the intercepts exceeded 350 ppb (Freeman and others, 1998).
Workings: Four reverse circulation holes were drilled in the Wolf Creek area in 1998 (Freeman and others, 1998).
Commodities (Major) - Au
