|Location and accuracy||Eastern shore of College Fiord, about 2.5 miles northeast of Coghill Point. Accurate within 1 mile. Locality 64 from Cobb (1972), locality 52 of MacKevett and Holloway (1977), and locality A-19 of Jansons and others (1984).|
Geologic descriptionBedrock of Late Cretaceous metasedimentary rocks of the Valdez Group is cut by a Tertiary felsic dike. Two quartz veins up to 6 ft thick are found around the shattered felsic dike. Veins slightly mineralized with calcite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, and presumably gold (Johnson, 1914).
|Geologic map unit||(-147.902043334048, 61.0894411947411)|
|Mineral deposit model||Chugach-type low-sulfide Au-quartz veins (Bliss, 1992; model 36a.1?) or Epithermal Au vein?|
|Mineral deposit model number||36a.1?|
|Age of mineralization||Tertiary or younger, the quartz veins are associated with the felsic dike.|
|Workings or exploration||Explored by 65 ft adit along a fault that cuts both quartz and dike rock, and surface stripping prior to 1913 (Johnson, 1914).|
|Indication of production||None|
Additional commentsApparently an unsuccessful gold lode prospect. The Q. & Q. prospect (ARDF number AN132) may be another name for this prospect.
