Cook Inlet has been recognized as the second-largest petroleum province in Alaska, second only to the North Slope. The south-central Tyonek Quadrangle is an area of significant geologic interest because it is the only location in Cook Inlet where the entire producing stratigraphy of the basin is exposed on the surface. Additionally, this area encompasses the structural boundary between the forearc basin and its sediment source rocks. To better understand the petroleum system and the geologic relationships between the exhumed arc intrusive rocks and adjacent Cenozoic stratigraphy of the Cook Inlet forearc basin, during the summer of 2010 the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys conducted a federally-funded...

The Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys, in collaboration with the University of Alaska Fairbanks, collected mafic rocks in the Ivishak River area of the northeastern Brooks Range during summer 2009 for geochemical sampling. The sampled rocks, including lava flows, sills, and limy volcaniclastic strata, crop out within the carbonate-platform succession of the Carboniferous Lisburne Group. Refer to Herriott and others (2011) for additional information regarding the geologic and geographic context of these samples, preliminary implications of the geochemical data presented here, and a summary of known mafic rock occurrences in the Arctic Alaska terrane. The analytical data tables associated with this...

The Tok project area is adjacent to the Delta mineral belt volcanogenic massive-sulfide (VMS) district, the Peak gold-silver-copper skarn, and structurally controlled gold and antimony mineralization in the Stibnite Creek and White Gold areas. The project area also includes the Noah prospect, an intrusion-related copper prospect. Whereas the Delta mineral belt has been extensively mapped and explored, the detailed mapping does not continue into the 2015 Tok project area. In this area, only reconnaissance mapping has been conducted. The combination of a lack of detailed mapping, the industry interest in the adjacent areas, and the geophysical data findings prompted the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical...

This map is the result of field investigations by DGGS in 1997 and 1998. This geologic map and report supersede the previously released Public Data File 99-24B, Preliminary interpretive bedrock geologic map of the Healy A-6 Quadrangle, southcentral Alaska. The current map has been updated to include mapping of areas adjacent to the Healy A-6 Quadrangle, newly interpreted bedrock units based on newly acquired analytical, paleontologic, and Ar40/Ar39 data. Ages for the rock units were modified. Field investigations were part of a two-year mapping program to provide geologic ground truth for airborne geophysical surveys flown by DGGS in the Chulitna region of southcentral Alaska during 1996.

Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) personnel collected rock samples while mapping the bedrock geology along a 12-mile-wide swath following the Alaska Highway between Delta Junction and the eastern edge of the Mount Hayes quadrangle near Dot Lake, Alaska. This mapping is one component of the multi-year DGGS project studying the geology, geohazards and resources along the proposed gas pipeline corridor from Delta Junction to the Canadian border. In 2006, we collected 10 samples for whole rock (major- and minor-oxides, and petrogenetically important trace-elements) analysis. In 2007, we collected 111 samples for whole rock analysis and 36 rock samples for geochemical trace-element analysis....

This report provides detailed (1:63,360-scale) mapping of portions of U.S. Geological Survey Circle B-2 (1955), B-3 (1955), B-4 (1952), C-2 (1955), C-3 (1955), and C-4 (1952) quadrangles. The area is part of the Circle mining district and adjacent to the Fairbanks mining district. This report includes detailed geologic, structural, stratigraphic, and geochronologic data. Based on the resulting geologic maps, field investigations, and laboratory materials analyses, the project has also generated derivative maps of geologic construction materials and geologic hazards.

This application allows users to view available geochemical data in a fully documented HTML table format. Users define the suite of sample analyses to be displayed by selecting sample and analysis types and either a geographic area or a previously compiled dataset. The data is stored in the DGGS Geologic and Earth Resource Information Library of Alaska (GERILA) digital database. The display tables are designed to provide documentation of the search criteria, samples, analyses, and individual geochemical determinations to the level reflected in their source publications or in project files to the best of DGGS staff's ability. The source GERILA dataset is incomplete and is added to as more data can be formatted and...
