The U.S. Bureau of Mines (Bureau) is conducting a four-year study to assess the mineral resources and the mineral development potential of the Colville Mining District. This study is a continuation of the Bureau's statewide mining district evaluation program. The northern Alaska mining district includes the Colville River drainage basin and the southern part of the southern National Petroleum Reserve - Alaska. As a result of this study, one lead-zinc and two barite occurrences were discovered. No evidence of major massive sulfide occurrences was noted in the area west of Drenchwater Creek within the mining district. This report summarizes the Bureau's 1992 field season.
