Abstract

These summaries of data on metallic and selected nonmetallic mineral occurrences and lists of selected references to .them in Geological Survey, U.S. Bureau of Mines, and State of Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys (and predecessor State and Territorial agencies) reports and maps and a very.few journal articles are designed to aid in library research on the mineral resources of the McCarthy quadrangle, Alaska. The references listed are selected in the sense that mainly statistical reports such as the annual Minerals Yearbook of the U.S. Bureau of Mines and many annual and biennial reports of the Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys and its predecessor agencies are not included. Also not included are data on claims about which little more than their locations is known (for example, localities 126- 130 in MacKevett and Holloway, 1977 (OF 77-169A). These omissions should not be interpreted as a judgement that the claims are not on valid mineral occurrences, but only chat there are insufficient data to describe any mineral deposits that might be present. Geochemical anomalies determined by analyses of rock and stream-sediment samples in which no metallic mineral was indentified are also omitted.
