|Location and accuracy||Approximate location is between King Cove spit and Slavna Point, 2 mi (3.2 km) east of King Cove. Anomaly no. 70 of Christie (1974).|
Geologic descriptionChristie (1974) described a color anomaly associated with a weak gossan developed at the contact of a quartz diorite pluton with volcanic rocks of the Belkofski Formation. Volcanic rocks include andesitic crystal tuffs and flows. The area of gossan is a maximum of 5,000 by 3,000 ft (1,500 by 900 m) and shows disseminated pyrite mineralization, generally in trace amounts, but locally as high as 2 percent. Approximately half of the pyrite is fracture controlled in local zones of higher pyrite content.

|Mineral deposit model||Epithermal gold vein|
|Mineral deposit model number||25|
|Age of mineralization||Pliocene or younger|
|Alteration of deposit||Propylitic and argillic alteration reported along with weak leaching.|
|Workings or exploration||Brief reconnaissance geologic mapping and a few soil and silt samples. Gold, silver, and zinc were slightly anomalous, at 0.02, 1.4, and 104 ppm , respectively. Copper and molybdenum were at background levels.|
|Indication of production||None|
Additional commentsIn Christie's (1974) evaluation, this occurrence had no sufficiently large covered area to hide a porphyry system and no copper mineralization was suggested.
