Summary

In 2016, geologists from the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) and University of Alaska Fairbanks carried out a two-part geologic mapping and geochemical sampling project in the Tok River area of the Tanacross A-5 and A-6 quadrangles (June 12-26 and July 8-26). This report provides results of stream-sediment sampling for trace-element geochemistry. An initial suite of sediment samples was collected from streams draining known gold occurrences, including the Stibnite Creek and Noah prospects, and numerous prospects in the White Gold area. These samples were split in half and the two splits were sieved to -200 mesh and -80 mesh, respectively. The splits were then both analyzed to determine which size fraction [...]

Purpose

The combination of insufficient detailed geologic mapping, historical and current industry interest in the adjacent mineralized areas, and the recently published geophysical data prompted the DGGS Mineral Resources section to conduct a stream-sediment sampling program in conjunction with geologic mapping in the Tok River area.
