Location and accuracy This possible occurrence, known only from a U.S. Bureau of Mines claim map (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1979), reportedly is in the vicinity of the Texas Creek Comstock deposit (BC037). It is approximately located in Section 22 at an elevation of about 3700 feet on a mountainside west of Ferguson Glacier (Elliott and Koch, 1981, p. 13, loc. 38). The location is probably accurate within about a half mile.
