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...
This publication contains previously unpublished geochemical analyses or re-analyses of lavas, magmatic inclusions, and a few gabbroic cumulate inclusions from Alaska volcanoes (Akutan, Augustine, Buzzard Creek, Dana, Douglas, Fourpeaked, Frosty, Great Sitkin, Iliamna, Kaguyak, Kiska, Okmok, Prindle Cone, Recheshnoi, Redoubt, Spurr, Ukinrek Maars, Vsevidof, Westdahl, Wrangell) collected by the authors and others over the past 35 years. It provides substantial data sets for three volcanoes (Vsevidof, Westdahl, and Douglas) for which little or no published data exist. All analyses were made by the GeoAnalytical laboratory at Washington State University in Pullman, WA. The ICP/MS data have been reduced using the 2006...

This report presents 40Ar/39Ar step-heating geochronology results for igneous and metamorphic rocks from the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys' (DGGS) Talkeetna Mountains C-4 Quadrangle and Adjoining Areas geologic mapping project. Hornblende-bearing gabbro returned a Late Triassic crystallization age consistent with regional results for Nikolai Greenstone-related magmatism. We determined Early Jurassic metamorphic ages for hornblende and sericite from two samples of upper greenschist to amphibolite grade metavolcanic rocks. Our results indicate that a granodiorite pluton intruding Wrangellia in the study area has a Middle Jurassic age consistent with the Talkeetna Arc, indicating that the Wrangellia...

The Iniskin-Tuxedni Bay area contains excellent exposures of nearly all of the lower Cook Inlet Mesozoic succession, including most of the stratigraphic sections that define the interval and the petroleum source rocks that comprise the basin. An underdeveloped understanding of the Mesozoic petroleum system has led the Alaska Department of Natural Resources' Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys and Division of Oil and Gas, and the U.S. Geological Survey to collaborate on a multi-year project that includes two major mapping campaigns. Geologic mapping between Chinitna Bay and the Johnson River during the 2015 field season encompassed volcanic arc rocks northwest of the Bruin Bay fault system, and Mesozoic...

This report presents 40Ar/39Ar step-heating geochronology results from a single outcrop of a mineralized near-trench intrusion exposed in a road cut near Whittier, Alaska. The outcrop is the best road-accessible occurrence of a Tertiary near-trench pluton in the region and is commonly visited by field trips, yet no prior geochronological data from this outcrop have been published. Two chronologically distinct intrusive bodies, the Paleogene Sanak-Baranof belt and the Eshamy-suite, are documented in the upper Cook Inlet area. Geochronological analysis of the two samples described in this report confirms that the Whittier road-cut intrusion and veins are coeval (53.0 +/- 0.3 Ma and 50.9 +/- 0.2 Ma, respectively) with...
