|Location and accuracy||This site is located on the west side of Uyak Bay approximately 1 1/2 miles west of triangulation station Bush and 3 miles southeast of Larsen Bay (Martin, 1913, locality 11; Berg and Cobb, figure 15, 1967, locality 10; Cobb, 1972, MF 460, locality 1; McGee, 1972, locality 10; MacKevett and Holloway, 1977, locality 1). Site location is accurate to within 1/2 mile.|
Geologic descriptionAt this site a quartz vein striking N 25 W and dipping 40 southwest cuts Cretaceous schist or slate (Becker, 1897). The vein carries arsenopyrite, pyrite, and free gold and varies in thickness from a few inches to 6 feet, averaging 2 1/2 feet. Quartz stringers parallel to the main vein occur in the surrounding country rock. Acidic dikes occur in the vicinity. This vein may be on the same structure as the Dan (KD004).
