Description

From abstract: Environmental geochemical investigations took place in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve (WRST), Alaska, between 1994 and 1997. Areas studied include the historic Kennecott stratabound copper mines and mill area; the historic mines and mill in the Bremner district, where gold was produced from polymetallic veins; the sporadically active gold placer mines at Gold Hill; the undisturbed, unmined porphyry copper-molybdenum deposits at Orange Hill and Bond Creek; and the historic mines and mill at Nabesna, where gold-bearing iron skarn deposits were exploited. The cooperative study between the U.S. Geological Survey and the National Park Service focused on identifying ... continued below

From abstract: Environmental geochemical investigations took place in
Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve (WRST), Alaska,
between 1994 and 1997. Areas studied include the historic
Kennecott stratabound copper mines and mill area; the historic
mines and mill in the Bremner district, where gold was produced
from polymetallic veins; the sporadically active gold
placer mines at Gold Hill; the undisturbed, unmined porphyry
copper-molybdenum deposits at Orange Hill and Bond Creek;
and the historic mines and mill at Nabesna, where gold-bearing
iron skarn deposits were exploited. The cooperative study
between the U.S. Geological Survey and the National Park
Service focused on identifying and characterizing geochemical
signatures associated with these mineralized areas. Sample
media included surface water, bedload sediment, rock, mine
waste, and mill tailings samples.
