Abstract

Geologic mapping of Port Moller, Stevopak Bay, and Simeonof Island 1° by 2° quadrangles on the Alaska Peninsula was conducted as part of the Alaska Mineral Resource Assessment Program (AMRAP). Geologic observations was obtained by using helicopter overflights, vertical aerial photography, and enhanced and extensively processed Landsat imagery (York and others, 1984; Wilson and York, 1985). Helicopter-supported field investigations were conducted from Sand Point in 1982 and 1986 and from both Sand Point and Port Moller in 1985 and 1985. In addition, field work was conducted from the U.S. Geological Survey Research Vessel Don J. Miller II in 1983 and 1984. The mapping of Burk (1965), Kennedy and Waldron (1955), and Moore (1974) provided an excellent basis for the AMRAP mapping. The present map duplicates both Moore’s map of the outer Shumagin Islands and Kennedy and Waldron’s map of the Pavlof Volcano area with minor additions. However, important changes have been made to Burk’s pioneering work.
