This report describes the mineral investigations of specific sites in the Johns Hopkins-Margerie Glacier Area. Approximately 17 square miles were mapped, and over 99 rock and placer samples were collected in an effort to determine possible extensions of known mineralization. Several rock samples contained anomalous copper and gold values, and anomalous gold was detected in several placer samples. The area has been found to contain copper, zinc, molybdenum, and gold, and has produced a total of approximately 7,100 oz of gold in the period 1938 to 1985.
