|Location and accuracy||The Zengar prospect is at an elevation of approximately 100 feet on a south tributary to Bear Creek. It is 3 miles south-southeast of Lone Mountain and 3 miles east-northeast of Funter Bay, near the southwest corner of the SE1/4 section 32, T. 41 S., R. 65 E. of the Copper River Meridian. The location is accurate within 1/4 mile.|
The rocks in the general area are mainly Ordovician and Devonian to Triassic clastic units, mafic-intermediate volcanic rocks, and subordinate limestone. The bedded rocks are intruded and locally metamorphosed by Cretaceous granodiorite (Gehrels and Berg, 1994).The Alaska Kardex file 112-139 shows a gold placer claim at this location. If the location is correct it would be 1/2 mile downstream from the Bear Creek asbestos prospect (JU219) (Cobb, 1978 [OFR 78-374]). No other information is available.
