Location and accuracy The Kid or Fawn prospect is at an elevation of about 800 feet, about 0.9 mile north of hill 1328 and 0.4 mile northwest of the center of section 27, T. 77 S., R. 88 E.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

This old prospect, which has been called either Kid or Fawn, was known prior to 1902, but has been mentioned only in passing since 1908 (Brooks, 1902; Wright and Wright, 1908). As described by Brooks (1902) under the name Fawn, the deposit consists of a vertical quartz vein that strikes N40W, is 6 feet thick, and is in chlorite schist. The vein contains pyrite and galena; a sample contained 1.2 ounce of gold per ton. A similar vein nearby is 4 to 5 feet thick and is less mineralized. As described by Wright and Wright (1908), the prospect consists of 3 parallel calcite-quartz veins up to 8 feet thick. Metal values are low. The host rocks are part of the Wales Group of Late Proterozoic and Cambrian age (Eberlein and others, 1983; Brew, 1996). The workings consist of open cuts and a 30-foot adit.
