|Location and accuracy||Approximately 2,000 feet north-northwest of the end of Fern Mine Road. This is locality 20 from Figure 9 (Cohen, 1982). Accurate within 1,000 feet.|
Geologic descriptionDetails about the prospect are unavailable. Most likely, a gold-bearing quartz vein(s) cuts the Late Cretaceous Willow Creek Pluton. The Willow Creek Pluton is a zoned pluton. The outer part consists of hornblende quartz diorite and lesser hornblende tonalite; the core consists of hornblende-biotite granodiorite, and lesser hornblende-biotite quartz monzodiorite and biotite quartz monzonite.

|Mineral deposit model number||36a?|
|Age of mineralization||Late Cretaceous or younger; the host of mineralization is the Late Cretaceous Willow Creek Pluton.|
|Workings or exploration||Apparently only minor surface prospecting.|

Additional commentsVery limited data about the prospect in the literature. Possibly (?) became part of the Fern Mine (ARDF number AN005). Stoll (1997) mentioned that the Giant Gold Mining Company prospect was located to the north of the Fern mine.
