The Kodiak Border Ranges ultramafic complex, Afognak batholith, and Shuyak Formation on Kodiak and Afognak Islands together form the lower, middle, and upper portions, respectively, of a Jurassic–Triassic island-arc crustal section. The Kodiak section exhibits structural and geochemical trends similar, but not identical to, the Tonsina-Nelchina segment of the Talkeetna arc, located >500 km to the northeast. Exposed at the base of the Kodiak section is cumulate clinopyroxenite with associated dunite, wehrlite, and layered gabbro. In the inferred middle to upper crust, tonalite and quartz diorite of the Afognak batholith intrude Shuyak Formation basaltic flows, basaltic pillow lavas, and volcaniclastic...
