|Location and accuracy||This prospect is at an elevation of about 300 feet, about 0.7 mile west of the west end of Paul Lake. It is about 0.5 mile northeast of the center of section 3, T. 78 S., R. 88 E. The only published location for this prospect is the small map of Wright and Wright (1908, figure 18). It is near what Maas and others (1995) call the 'Paul Lake West' occurrence. This is not the Washington prospect (CR179) about 2.0 miles to the north-northwest.|
Geologic descriptionThe only reference to this prospect is the small map of Wright and Wright (1908, figure 18). They give no details of the deposit, only that the rocks in the vicinity are marble and chlorite schist of the Wales Group of Late Proterozoic and Cambrian age (Eberlein and others, 1983; Brew, 1996). The prospect is near where Maas and others (1995) collected a float sample that contained 24 parts per billion gold, 5,209 parts per million (ppm) lead, and 9,673 ppm zinc.
