Location and accuracy This prospect is known only from U.S. Bureau of Mines (1977) claim records. Its approximate location is on the northeast side of Ham Island, possibly about 0.4 mile northwest of Camp Cove. The site is in section 24, T. 77 S., R. 93 E., of the Copper River Meridian. It corresponds to loc. 140 in Elliott and others (1978). The location probably is accurate within about 0.5 mile.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

The country rocks in the area of this site are Upper Jurassic or Cretaceous andesitic or basaltic metavolcanic rocks (Berg, 1972 [I 684]). The rocks were regionally metamorphosed to greenschist-grade phyllite and semischist in Late Cretaceous time. According to U.S. Bureau of Mines claim records (1977), this prospect, which apparently is in an area underlain by the metavolcanic rocks, was staked for gold. No other information about it has been made public.
