USGS Publication: Professional Paper 1795–B
Complete penetration of the Otuk Formation in a continuous drill core (diamond-drill hole, DDH 927) from the Red Dog District illuminates the facies, age, depositional environment, source rock potential, and isotope stratigraphy of this unit in northwestern Alaska. The section, in the Wolverine Creek plate of the Endicott Mountains Allochthon (EMA), is ~82 meters (m) thick and appears structurally uncomplicated. Note: This is part of the collection of papers that follow continues the series of USGS investigative reports in Alaska under the broad umbrella of the geologic sciences.
