Major-oxide and trace-element geochemical data from rocks collected in the Tanacross C-1, D-1, and D-2 quadrangles, Alaska in 2017

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2020

From June 12-21, 2017, the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) geologists carried out geologic mapping and geochemical sampling in the northeastern Tanacross D-1, and parts of the C-1, and D-2 quadrangles. The project area lies within the Yukon-Tanana Uplands, and encompasses the boundary between Fortymile and Lake George assemblages. It includes porphyry copper-molybdenum-gold deposits and prospects including: Taurus, Fishhook (also known as SW Pika), and Pika Canyon, and is adjacent to the Fortymile Mining District to the north. Highlights of this geochemical report include sampling and characterization of the Pika Canyon, Fishhook, and Taurus prospects. This dataset contains four samples with gold in excess of 0.1 parts per million (ppm) in several different locations, including two samples from Fishhook with 2.15 ppm and 0.697 ppm gold, respectively (17MBW119, 17MBW130), and a sample with 4,420 ppm silver and greater than 30 percent lead (17MLW002) collected nearby Pika Canyon. The DGGS Tanacross project area includes a section of Paleozoic and Mississippian- to Devonian-age, metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks, as well as Jurassic(?) to Tertiary intrusive and volcanic rocks. Major- and trace-element geochemical analyses were obtained for metamorphic rocks to distinguish between igneous and sedimentary protoliths, and for igneous rocks to characterize and differentiate Mesozoic and Cenozoic rocks in the area. The analytical data tables associated with this report are available in digital format as comma-separated value (CSV) files. Additional details about the organization of information are noted in the accompanying metadata file. All files can be downloaded from the DGGS website (http://doi.org/10.14509/29778).
