Reifenstuhl, R.R., Dover, J.H., Newberry, R.J., Clautice, K.H., Pinney, D.S., Liss, S.A., Blodgett, R.B., and Weber, F.R., 1998, Geologic map of the Tanana A-1 and A-2 quadrangles, central Alaska: State of Alaska, Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS),


This report provides detailed (1:63,360-scale) mapping of the Tanana A-1 and A-2 quadrangles (500 square miles; equivalent to eight 7.5-minute quadrangles). The area is part of the Manley Hot Springs-Tofty mining districts and adjacent to the Rampart mining district to the south of the Tanana B-1 Quadrangle. This report includes detailed bedrock, surficial, structural, and stratigraphic data. Based on the resulting geologic maps, field investigations, and laboratory materials analyses, the report also includes derivative maps of geologic construction materials and geologic hazards. The Tanana A-1 and A-2 Quadrangles and surrounding area comprise several isolated mountainous ridges in the western Yukon-Tanana Upland of interior Alaska.

The Tanana A-1 and A-2 quadrangles lie between the villages of Rampart, on the Yukon River, and Manley Hot Springs, at the terminus of the Elliott Highway. At the time the report was published, the area towns were not part of any municipal or local governmental jurisdiction. The investigation of gold, tin, and other mineral occurrences in conjunction with comprehensive geologic mapping and recently-acquired geophysical data will provide a scientific basis for expanded mineral exploration and development that can lead to the economic growth and the creation of new jobs needed by the Rampart-Manley-Tofty region's inhabitants and the State of Alaska. These objectives are consistent with the statewide goals and priorities articulated for the Department of Natural Resources by Alaska's Governor in his Executive Budget Summary for Fiscal Year 1997.
