The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) uses an informal set of names for about 140 'volcanoes.' Some names refer to large, complex volcanic centers, while others indicate only a specific cone. This publication expands the list of 140 named volcanoes to include all volcanic vents where magma has reached the surface over the past 2.6 million years. This database of all known (published, or unpublished with permission) Quaternary volcanic vents was developed to better describe the nature and character of Quaternary volcanism in Alaska and specifically to aid in the discussion of spatial and temporal patterns of Alaska volcanism. This list is a preliminary starting point, and we hope that it is updated and expanded by...

Personnel from the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) conducted a reconnaissance rock sampling project from April 30 to May 4, 2012, to obtain modern, quantitative geochemical analyses to characterize select mafic-ultramafic rocks and one chalcopyrite-bearing quartz vein sample from Yellow Hill on Annette Island, in the Ketchikan Quadrangle, southeastern Alaska. Highlights of this sampling project include mafic-ultramafic rock samples with up to 0.079 ppm platinum (Pt) and 0.123 ppm palladium (Pd), and a quartz vein with 2.83 percent copper (Cu) and 0.155 ppm gold (Au).
