|Location and accuracy||The Janiksela prospect is located in the SW1/4NE1/4 sec. 29, T. 2 N., R. 1 E., Fairbanks Meridian. This prospect is on the north side of Goldstream Creek about 1.3 miles northeast of the junction of the Steese and Elliott highways at Fox. The exact location is uncertain.|
Geologic descriptionCassiterite was reported, but Hill did not find any in the dump material in 1931 (Hill, 1933, p. 154). In 1931, two shafts were noted, but one was flooded and one was caved (Hill, 1933). The lode strikes east and apparently follows a contact between mica schist and black graphite schist. A mixture of quartz, feldspar, and mica on the dump suggests a pegmatite rather than a quartz vein (Hill, 1933, p. 154).
