|Location and accuracy||The Hess and Thomas prospect is located on the ridge between Ready Bullion Creek and Eva Creek, at an elevation of about 1,500 feet. It is about 0.9 mile north-northwest of the town of Ester in the NE1/4 sec. 6, T. 1 S., R. 2 W., Fairbanks Meridian.|
Geologic descriptionThe country rock is dark, greasy-looking chloritic schist cut by small quartz veins (Smith, 1913 [B 525, p. 208]). Bedrock in the area has been mapped as biotite schist and amphibolite of the Muskox sequence (Newberry and others, 1996). In 1912, Smith (1913 [B 525, p. 208]) noted an inactive prospect pit at this site.
