Location and accuracy This prospect is on the ridge between the headwaters of the Inmachuk River and Old Glory Creek in the SW1/4 of section 1, T. 6 N., R. 22 W. It is at an elevation of about 1,000 feet and about 0.8 mile northwest of the Nelson Creek lode gold occurrence (BN059).

Geologic setting

Geologic description

In the Fall of 2004, Royal Pretoria Gold Ltd. staked 2 State of Alaska mining claims and did a soil survey on this prospect. Altar Resources developed the prospect concept, conducted the field work, and held the property in 2004. Soil samples were collected on a 2,200 by 2,400 meter soil grid; the samples were taken 100 meters apart on nine, east-west sample lines, 300 m apart. The samples defined a northwest-trending gold anomaly. The gold content of the soil was as high as 735 parts per billion; anomalous gold values were obtained on 7 of the 9 soil sample lines. Other anomalous elements include arsenic and antimony. On April 7, 2006, Full Metal Minerals (2006, ID=53) announced that it had entered an agreement to acquire 100 percent of this property.
The rocks in the area of this prospect are Paleozoic metasedimentary schist and marble (Till and others, 1986). A northwest-trending fault zone may localize gold mineralization in this area.
Geologic map unit (-163.217296021107, 65.8565027569773)
Mineral deposit model Probably quartz veins and segregations in metasedimentary rocks (Cox and Singer, 1986, model 36a?)
Mineral deposit model number 36a?
Age of mineralization Probably mid-Cretaceous.
Alteration of deposit Silicification?
