|Location and accuracy||The Gold King prospect is located somewhat imprecisely at an elevation of 3,700 ft about 1 1/2 miles northeast of the confluence of Day Creek and Big Creek (sec. 26, T. 31 N., R. 3 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian). The location is accurate within a 2-mile radius.|
Geologic descriptionLittle information is available on this property except the description in Heiner and Wolff (1968) that it is a gold quartz property.
|Geologic map unit||(-148.132724981074, 67.4796171099834)|
|Mineral deposit model||Low-sulfide Au-quartz veins? (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 36a?).|
|Mineral deposit model number||36a?|
|Age of mineralization||Middle Cretaceous(?) based on arguments by Dillon (1982) that the age of emplacement of the gold-bearing quartz veins of the Koyukuk and Chandalar districts was between the Neocomian metamorphism of the Devonian host rocks and their erosional unroofing and cooling in Albian time.|
|Workings or exploration||A three-stamp mill was reportedly built in 1910 (Heiner and Wolff, 1968).|
|Indication of production||Undetermined|
