Location and accuracy The approximate location of the Zimovia occurrence, known in 1981 (Elliott and Koch, 1981, p. 7, loc. 8) only from a U.S. Bureau of Mines claims map (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1979), is at sealevel on the north shore of upper Bradfield Canal, in Section 25. It is about 2 miles due east of the mouth of Harding River. The location is probably accurate to within about a quarter of a mile.
