|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is the 10 miles of modern beach along the north shore of Hagemeister Strait, from the tip of Asigyukpak Spit (in the Hagemeister Island C-4 quadrangle) west to within about 2 miles of Pyrite Point. The map site is on the beach about 1/8 mile southeast of VABM Fifteen; it is approximately sample location 54 of Berryhill (1963). This occurrence is locality 18 of Cobb (1972 [MF 362]; 1980 [OF 80-909]).|
Geologic descriptionBerryhill (1963) collected 7 samples of beach deposits along this segment of the Hagemeister Strait shoreline; five of these samples contained trace amounts of flour gold in heavy-mineral concentrates. In 1937, gold in workable amounts was reported in some of the beach deposits northwest of Hagemeister Island and in the valley of the Slug River (Smith, 1939, p. 63 [B 910-A]).
