Unnamed Occurrence (ARDF - ID119; on lower Prince Creek), Iditarod District, Yukon-Koyukuk Borough, Alaska, USA

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
 
 
Location: This lode occurrence is exposed in a placer cut on Prince Creek, at an elevation of about 400 feet. It is near the center of the south boundary of section 12, T. 26 N., R. 47 W., of the Seward Meridian. The location is accurate.
Geology: This occurrence consists of two quartz-sulfide veinlets in and adjacent to a 6-foot-thick monzonite dike that intrudes hornfels derived from the Upper Cretaceous, Kuskokwim Group (Miller and Bundtzen, 1994). The two veinlets average about 1 inch thick, strike N20E and dip 75SE. Their length is unknown as exposures were limited to the placer cut. Cinnabar and scheelite were noted in one vein (T.K. Bundtzen, unpublished field data, 1984). One grab sample contained 3,400 parts per billion (ppb) gold, 10.0 parts per million (ppm) silver, 1,380 ppm tungsten, 78 ppm bismuth, and 820 ppb mercury (McGimsey and others, 1988; Bundtzen and others, 1992).
Workings: Samples were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey and Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys in the 1980s (McGimsey and others, 1988; Bundtzen and others, 1992).

Commodities (Major) - Au; (Minor) - Ag, Bi, Hg, W
Development Status: None
Deposit Model: Polymetallic vein (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 22c).
