|Location and accuracy||The exact location of the Lincoln mine is not known, but it was reported to be at the head of Happy Creek on the right limit (Reed, 1938, p. 15). The location is only known to within about one-half mile; it is probably in the NW1/4 sec. 32, T. 1 N. R. 2 W., Fairbanks Meridian.|
Geologic descriptionIn 1938, an 8-inch vein, oriented N. 30 E., dipping 75 W., was exposed by a 37-foot shaft (Reed, 1938, p. 15). About 8 tons of ore were mined but not milled from this shaft. Grab samples of the ore had a value of $160 in gold per ton (about 4.57 ounces of gold per ton) (Reed, 1938, p. 15). This prospect is in quartz-muscovite schist, quartzite, and chlorite-quartz schist of the Fairbanks Schist; biotite schist of the Muskox sequence lays to the northwest (Newberry and others, 1996).
