Bedrock geologic map of the eastern Moran area, Tanana B-6 and C-6 quadrangles, Alaska

Metadata Updated: July 5, 2023

Raw Data File 2022-11, Bedrock geologic map of the eastern Moran area, Tanana B-6 and C-6 quadrangles, Alaska, presents a geologic map of the eastern Moran geologic map area, which is 150 miles west of Fairbanks, Alaska, north of the Yukon River between the communities of Ruby and Tanana. Historical and active placer mines in the Melozitna mining district, which encompasses the Moran Dome area, have produced more than 12,000 ounces of gold and an undetermined amount of tin, yet little is understood about sources for the placer metals, or the area's gold and polymetallic lode occurrences. During the summer of 2011, geologists from the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys' Minerals Resources Section carried out a geologic field survey, including mapping and sampling of the 301-square-mile eastern Moran area in the Tanana A-6 and B-6 quadrangles, Alaska. The mapping is part of an integrated program of airborne geophysical surveys followed by geologic mapping; it gives geological context to the Moran airborne geophysical survey and provides basic information critical to understanding Alaska's geology and mineral-resource potential. The complete report, geodatabase, and ESRI fonts and style files are available from the DGGS website: http://doi.org/10.14509/30884.
