|Location and accuracy||This prospect is known only from U.S. Bureau of Mines (1977) claim records. Its approximate location is at an elevation of about 100 feet, on the U.S.-Canada international boundary at or near Monument 1. The site is in section 1, T. 69 S., R. 100 E., of the Copper River Meridian. It corresponds to loc. 10 in Elliott and others (1978). The location probably is accurate within 0.1 mile.|
