Abstract

Anomalous gold values in mineralized veins and hydrothermally altered quartz-mica schist in the Pedro Dome-Cleary Summit area of the Fairbanks district suggest the presence of numerous small low- to high-grade lodes. Anomalous concentrations of gold were found to exist in the wall rocks adjacent to mineralized veins. In general, the gold concentration gradients in these wall rocks are much too steep to increase appreciably the mineable width of the veins. Anomalous gold values were also detected in bedrock samples taken by means of a power auger on the Murphy Dome Road along the southwest extension of the Pedro Dome-Cleary Summit mineralized belt.
