|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is on the modern beach on the north shore of Hagemeister Strait, 2 miles west of Pyrite Point. It is sample locality 49 of Berryhill (1963) and locality 16 of Cobb (1972 [MF 362]; 1980 [OF 80-909]).|
Geologic descriptionBerryhill (1963, sample 49) collected an auger sample of beach sand from this locality that contained a trace amount of flour gold in the heavy-mineral concentrate. 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]).
