Just downloaded this and thought those of you working or thinking about working Hatcher Pass area might find it as informative as I did.

1 sheet and right at 16mb. But some nice pictures.

Thanks Over, I had not seen this yet. The GS has been busy in the Hatcher Pass area. It is great that they are still investigating mining districts. However I wish their pursuits were not so academic. I would prefer more economically oriented studies like they used to do 100 years ago. The GS does these studies for other geologists instead of practical applications that prospectors or even land use planners could use.

I suppose we are just lucky the GS still exists at all with the yahoos in DC. The ones that got rid of the Bureau of Mines.
