|Location and accuracy||This prospect is near the mouth of Canyon Creek on the south shore of Canoe Passage on Hawkins Island. The map site is in the W1/2 sec. 3, T 16 S., R 5 W., of the Copper River Meridian. The location is accurate to within 600 ft. Shown as site C-49 by Jansons and others (1984).|
Geologic descriptionThis prospect reportedly is in a 3-foot-wide shear zone in slate of the Tertiary Orca Group (Jansons and others, 1984). Volcanic rocks crop out near the prospect (Nelson and others, 1985). Examination of the area by the U.S. Bureau of Mines in the early 1980s showed no obvious signs of mineralization. Three samples contained 24-140 ppm Cu (Jansons and others, 1984).
