|Location and accuracy||According to Buddington (1929, p. 67-68 [B 807]), the Victoria group of 25 claims, staked in the early 1900s, are four deep along the international boundary west of Mt. Dolly. The map site is at the presumed center of the group of claims, in section 13, T. 68 S., R. 99 E., of the Copper River Meridian. It is at about 2100 feet elevation, and 1.0 mile northwest of Mt. Dolly. The coordinates are for this site. The site corresponds to loc. 4 on pl. 2 in Buddington (1929) and to loc. 9 in Elliott and others (1978). The location is probably accurate within 0.3 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe country rocks in the area of this site are metamorphosed sedimentary strata of the Jurassic or Triassic Hazelton Group that are intruded by dike-like apophyses of the Eocene Hyder Quartz Monzonite batholith (Buddington, 1929; Smith, 1977; Berg and others, 1988). The deposit apparently consists of quartz fissure vein(s) in Hazelton metasedimentary rocks (Buddington, 1929, p. 67-68; Maas and others, 1995, p. 262, 592). The quartz contains sparse sulfide minerals that are not identified in descriptions of the deposit, but probably include at least sphalerite and galena. Float in the vicinity contained 141.9 ppm Ag and 16.64 percent Zn. The deposit was explored in the early 1900s by several short adits.
