|Location and accuracy||The Macomb prospect is located in the SW1/4SW1/4 sec. 21, T. 1 N, R. 2 W. Fairbanks Meridian. This prospect consists of several claims that were staked on a vein on the north side of Saint Patrick Creek; it is approximately 2.5 miles east-northeast of the top of Ester Dome.|
Geologic descriptionHill (1933, p. 152) reported that several claims had been staked on a vein that strikes northeast and dips 60 SE. Two shafts were sunk, one 30 and the other 50 feet deep, but they were caved by 1931. Ore on the dump is crushed schist, gouge, and quartz. There is no information on its metal content.
