|Location and accuracy||The Maloney prospect is located in the SE1/4 sec. 2, T. 1 S., R. 3 W., Fairbanks Meridian. The Maloney shaft is located approximately one-half mile northwest of the junction of Willow and Ester Creeks; it is approximately 1.9 miles south-southwest of the top of Ester Dome. This prospect is locality 3 of Cobb (1972 [MF 410]).|
Geologic descriptionA 90-foot shaft intersected a 12- to 14-foot-wide vein at a depth of 50 feet (Hill, 1933, p. 123). The vein strikes east-northeast and dips southeast. Material on the dump is mainly quartz schist; there is also some quartz that contains arsenopyrite and stibnite (Hill, 1933, p. 123).
