Abstract

A multidisciplinary mineral survey conducted in the Chugach National Forest wilderness study lands, including roadless areas and the College Fiord-Nellie Juan Wilderness Study Area in Alaska, has determined that there are areas with substantiated resource potential for gold, silver, copper, and zinc and areas with probable resource potential for all of the above metals as well as molybdenum, nickel, manganese, chrome, antimony, and lead. Areas in the southeast part of the national forest have substantiated potential for coal, oil, and gas resources. Future study in the Chugach National Forest should focus on several aspects of the geology and mineral-resource occurrences to improve the understanding of the deposits.
