|Location and accuracy||The Zelda prospect is on the northeast shore of Douglas Island, 1 mile northwest of the mouth of Nevada Creek. It is near the center of section 8, T. 42 S., R. 68 E. of the Copper River Meridian. The location is accurate.|
The Zelda prospect was discovered in 1912 and was developed by 2 small adits. The deposit consists of black phyllite that contains several discontinuous, concordant quartz veins (Redman and others, 1989). The quartz veins contain pyrite. U.S. Bureau of Mines samples contained up to 1.7 ppm gold (Redman and others, 1989).The rocks in the general area are Upper Jurassic or Cretaceous marine argillite and graywacke, interbedded with andesite or basalt (Brew and Ford, 1985). The bedded rocks are regionally metamorphosed to prehnite-pumpellyite or greenschist grade, and cut by diorite or gabbro dikes and sills.
