Abstract
During 1979-80, the Bureau of Mines evaluated the mineral potential of approximately 1,120,000 acres in the northeastern portion of the Kenai Peninsula and northwestern Prince William Sound, Alaska. Systematic placer sampling identified that several previously nonproducing drainages in the east-central portion of the Kenai Peninsula and on the east side of port wells contain highly anomalous values of gold. This placer gold mineralization led to the identity of two potentially mineralized, northeasterly striking belts of limonite-stained pyrrhotite-bearing metasediments that are characterized by the presence of numerous Felsic sills and dikes and sulfide-bearing quartz veins. The rivers, and the basins they drain, should be explored further for placer and lode gold deposits.
